Connecting local responses around the world
Everyone has important pieces to the puzzle for the survival and development of the region where they live. When people choose teamwork on equal terms and contribute through social capital, things really start to happen. In Vuollerim, a small village by the Arctic Circle in Swedish Lapland, there are several examples of what is possible when people take action together. Here the community has not waited for the government to do things for them. They have taken the lead in their own issues.
It is about the great teamwork gong on among grassroots in Swedish Lapland.
When I watched this video, I was speechless. This was my dream community, this is what I would like my neighbourhood to be.
