Samsoe – the Green Island is an international online project involving 31 journalism students from all over the world. Their aim is to provide coverage of Samsoe’s success in becoming a CO2 neutral community.
Climate change has sparked a lot of global attention in recent years, but CO2 emissions are continually increasing worldwide.
The Danish Island of Samsoe has managed to become CO2 neutral within less than ten years.
The success is owed to the local people of Samsoe, who quickly saw the potential in owning shares in the locally erected wind mills.
A wide variety of alternative energy sources today provide the islanders with heating, electricity, and even fuel or their cars.
This is the story of these islanders. Enjoy the reading.
