Wild wild North

My life 350 km north of the Arctic circle

Resources for World Changers

These are the inspiring films, books etc. that the lovely people participating in the workshop “Concrete tools for world changers: builders of a sustainable Europe” suggested (and that I could identify). I take no responsibility for the contents, I haven’t even had the time to check all of them out.
(Why I added this page to my Arctic blog? Because it belongs to my life, and because we’ll have to change the world if we want to keep the Arctic as beautiful and wild as it is.)
