BORNHOLM: SHOWING THE WAY
Green energy, waste management and the first island to be named a World Craft Region are just some of the traits that place Bornholm in a position to take the lead and show how a self sustained community can develop in a holistic and sustainable way.
Therefore, based on examples from the island, Exploring Bornholm is a Boutique Style Consultancy that offers customized seminars to decision makers and leadership groups in which the aim is to share insightful knowledge on how to create sustainable urban transformations.
Bo Christiansen, founder of Scaledenmark has earned a strong reputation for his passion and commitment to communicate how Copenhagen has undergone a sustainable transformation and delivered true economic, environmental and social impact. After publishing the book Exploring Copenhagen and establishing the boutique style reflection tour sessions as recognisable resources for understanding sustainable development, he now takes on the challenge on conveying Exploring Bornholm as a source of inspiration for urban strategies that dwell on the implementation of cleaner, healthier and greener societies.
After facing numerous economic challenges, Bornholm is a viable example of how an entire community can rethink itself, adapt, transform and nonetheless include innovation as a strategy of survival. Today, the island has become a living lab that is taking the lead and showing how green visions can become reality.
Hence, with a successful precedent set by the island, Exploring Bornholm is a Boutique Style Consultancy that offers customized seminars to decision makers and leadership groups in which the aim is to share insightful knowledge on how to create sustainable urban transformations.
