Samsø 3.0 has been a long and stable social development.
Since 1997 and up until today there has been ongoing movement, over time 440 million kroner has been invested, with great results like:
– 100% self-sufficient when it comes to energy
In 2011 the “Version 2.0 from best to next praxis”, began a new conceptual process where the goal was being able to be called “Denmark’s renewable energy island”.
– And targeting being independent of fossilize fuels.
Headings in 2011 also referred to all the work that had to be scheduled in the process of the island to be fossil fuels independent by 2030.
It’s a success for Samsø energy Academy and Samsø municipality, and therefore we move forward towards “Version 3.0”.
3.0 deal with circular bio economy, which can be crucial in small and medium-sized enterprises on the island.
We proudly invite you into the design process, as we believe, it gives an insight to how we develop cross-sector.
Status on the conference It Stays on the Island, and the Circular Bio-economy Project
A public conference, It Stays on the Island, was held on February 24 together with Samsø Municipality, where island inhabitants chose to spend their Friday finding out more about Samsø 3.0. The Bio-circular Economy is Samsø Municipality’s new project, which runs over four years. Samsø Municipality and the Energy Academy have launched two conferences for interested citizens. Stakeholders participated in the first conference, which revolved around six new initiatives: resources, education, think tank, retaining nutrients on the island, sorting of waste, and water circulation. At the following conference, which was open for everyone, 15 initiatives were launched, and it became apparent that there is great demand for a bio-circular economy on Samsø.
