Climate change has sparked a lot of global attention in recent years, but CO2 emissions are continually increasing worldwide.

The Danish island of Samsoe stands out as a sustainable success. Hard work and local engagement have made the island CO2 neutral in less then ten years.

The success is owed to the local people of Samsoe, who quickly saw the potential in owning shares in the locally erected wind mills.

A wide variety of alternative energy sources today provide the islanders with heating, electricity, and even fuel or their cars.

Samsoe – the Green Island tells the story of these islanders. Enjoy the reading.
