Smart communities are those that make the lives of their citizens better.
Through sustainable development, we humans today will be able to meet our needs without destroying future generations' opportunities to satisfy their needs.
This applies on a large and small scale - and everyone can contribute. Maybe we sometimes think that there is so little point in doing something good when so much goes wrong in the world. In a small community like Sekken, we soon discover that small measures can mean a lot.
Something is about thinking back and living a little more like previous generations. It is often referred to as "an easier life" when someone moves to a deserted place and lives "old-fashioned". This can present exciting challenges, but much can be done with minor lifestyle changes - a modern and simple lifestyle.
Technological development means that Sekken and other smaller communities in some ways function at least as well as the big city, and in other areas small-scale activity can be more efficient.
When Sekken has sustainability, we contribute to sustainable development on our entire planet. It's SMART to be sustainable. Together we become Smart Sekken!
We are following in the footsteps of Smart Molde and the great work they are doing. Smart Molde is a program that will contribute to Molde becoming a more sustainable society. In collaboration with business, academia, volunteering, citizens and the public sector, we will begin to set the framework for the work ahead. The program will be based on the needs of the inhabitants, and use sustainable methods and solutions to make Molde a better place to live, live and work.
