Ærø Eksperimentet is off to its earliest start. We're at a stage where we're rallying those of you who are interested, intrigued, and curious about being part of an amusing and thought-provoking experiment. An experiment completely free of judgement, dictates or demands that you cannot meet.
If you join us now, you'll be part of a broad, social movement with one common goal: To help and support eachother in the effort to make the world a little greener and reduce Ærø's carbon footprint, one small step at the time.
We'll be focusing on establishing ultra local communities around sharing, mending, reselling and giving away stuff instead of throwing out. All of this in an effort to prolong the lifespan of the things we use in our everyday lives, thus saving CO2 by not buying a lot of new things or creating even more climate hostile garbage.
We're developing a digital solution that'll help you do these things from the comfort of your own home - and as a supplement to our everyday face to face interaction which is such an integral part of island life.
We'd like to call on everyone - both on and outside Ærø -to become part of Ærø Eksperimentet!
It doesn't matter whether you're wealthy or merely scraping by - or if you're moderately environmentally conscious or almost religiously green in the way you consume.
What's important is your awareness of our impact on the environment as consumers and your curiosity towards all the little things we can tweak and work around in our everyday lives to counteract it.
Your participation in Ærø Eksperimentet is up to you and your everyday life. Busy as a bee or plenty of free-time? Just pitch in with the time you can spare. Ærø Eksperimentet is organized in such a way that everyone can participate in whichever way they like.
The only criterion for active participation is that you're a registered citizen in Ærø Municipality. All others are welcome to subscribe to our newsletter.
YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE FROM A DISTANCE
You agree that Ærø Eksperimentet is an important and interesting project; but you don't have much time to spare - and perhaps you don't even reside on Ærø physically. But you'd still like to keep up to speed with the project.
YOUR LIFESTYLE IS PRETTY GREEN AND YOU FEEL NATURALLY INCLINED TO GO ALL IN
You're extremely engaged in being part of a green transition and you are willing to put in both the time and the effort required to fully partcipate in the project.
YOU FIND THE SUBJECT EXTREMELY IMPORTANT AND WANT TO PARTICIPATE AS MUCH AS YOUR BUSY LIFE PERMITS
You're conscious sbout the fact that something needs to be done. You feel like participating and making a change - but you can only commit to a limited number of things and you need to be able to plan around it.
YOU'RE AWARE THAT THE CLIMATE IS AT STAKE - BUT YOU HAVE DOUBTS AS TO WHETHER THERE'S ANYTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT
You're used to a lifestyle where the use of household chemicals is a matter of course. You're naturally sceptical towards a zeitgeist of green fads - but you have knowledge, experience and relevant insight that you want to contribute.
Contact us here, and become part of Ærø Eksperimentet!
Joining Ærø Eksperimentet is easy. It requires no prequalifications, no specialized knowledge and no deep insight into environmental matters or green transition. We only ask for whatever time and dedication you can spare.
If you decide to join - alone or with your household - please write to us with your name, contact info and a line or two about what convinced you to participate in Ærø eksperimentet.
...and we'll get right back to you!
