The session included an Arte video and live broadcasting from Samsø with Søren Hermansen who drove around the island to show which technologies the islanders are using for their energy transition. They are bargaining to lower the number of windmills and exchange them for bigger ones. Samsø’s community consists of 5 parishes, where people feel a strong sense of belonging.
