No Gold-Digging!

"No Gold-digging!“ These word may as well chrystallize the meaning of Sustainable Development, which is about a balance that can only be acquired by the three braces of sustainability: social, environmental and economical development. If the stakeholder's only aim is to "make money," something is bound to break. Balance in all areas is a key success factor.


When the Advisory Group in the Northern Sustainability Initiative gathered for the first tim in Husavik, in 2009, the had a lot to discuss. Important messages from people with different views and opinions were clear. "No gold-digging." The importance of staying within the limits and preserving the uniqe qualities and variety of the local area is the advisory group decided to have as a guiding light in the journey ahead.
