Northern perspective

Participate in the development of our common future. Upload your contribution to Nordperspektiv !

The changeover in northern Sweden is taking place quickly and leads to residents' perspectives being lost on the road. What is required is for more residents to have a say in how the changeover is to take place. Nordperspektiv contributes by offering a platform where residents can co-create the future.

The most thought-provoking proposals end up directly on the decision - makers' table.

➜ How do we grow to grow reasonably and sustainably?
➜ How can we residents be involved in the development?
➜ What are our dreams and visions for the future of our town or region?
➜ What do we want to preserve?

Delta i utvecklingen av vår gemensamma framtid. Ladda upp ditt bidrag till Nordperspektiv!

Omställningen i norra Sverige sker snabbt och leder till att invånares perspektiv riskerar att tappas bort på vägen. Vad som krävs är att fler invånare får tycka till om hur omställningen ska gå till. Nordperspektiv bidrar genom att erbjuda en plattform där invånarna får medskapa framtiden.

De mest tankeväckande förslagen hamnar direkt på beslutsfattarnas bord.

➜ Hur gör vi för att växa lagom och hållbart?
➜ Hur kan vi invånarna involveras i utvecklingen?
➜ Vad har vi för drömmar och visioner om framtiden i vår ort eller vår region?
➜ Vad vill vi bevara?

Sweden and Finland in NATO

Sweden and Finland should apply for NATO membership.
When preparing the application, our two countries should consult
with current NATO members in the Nordic region.

Future negotiations must aim to achieve
increased Nordic defense co-operation within NATO. A necessary
rearmament can lead to a stronger common defense in
Northern Europe.

Gender in Norrbotten

To create a more sustainable Norrbotten, an effort is needed from a gender equality and equality perspective. As a gender scientist, I feel a strong concern about not being able to stay in Luleå because there are no job opportunities to work and get an income in these matters. It is necessary for companies, municipalities and the region to prioritize this in order to retain the knowledge that they would otherwise otherwise lose. Gender equality and equality can no longer just be for managers to tick off their lists, but drastic measures need to be taken to get a more equal Norrbotten and in turn a more sustainable climate, because these are aspects that are deeply intertwined!

The illustration is created by me and symbolizes the struggle for equality.

TV community

It would be great if we could watch each other's TV shows.
Hope that SVT can have more "joint programs" between the Nordic countries so that we become aware of our neighbors and can incorporate them (their existence, life and thoughts) into our sphere of thought.

Fællesnordiskt Nordkalottlän

A proposal for a better future in the north would be good if the three national North Cape governments could let go of the national, on trial. Bring the three northernmost counties together into a common administrative region, where the regional assemblies themselves had to agree on what details they wanted to pick from each national system - and in what order - to create a cohesive common and borderless everyday life and development platform. For this to work, of course, every national system must be made compatible with what such an experimental region chooses (a whimsical back road to an even more borderless Nordic region). This is how it is necessary - among other things - for stable daily physical communication routes Tromsö-Luleå-Rovaniemi-Kirkenes-Tromsö. Start with some delimited factual sub-areas and add gradually; education, welfare, industry, transport, culture, etc. Thus: Troms and Finnmark counties, Norrbotten county and Lapland county as a new joint Nordic and borderless North Calotte county. On trial for 20 years. As people in the area actually lived before the 14th century, national ties placed on the development between the Gulf of Bothnia and the Arctic Ocean.

The flow of ice

Teos esittää unelmaa arktisesta luonnosta, jossa jää saa myös tulevaisuudessa toteuttaa ikiaikaista kiertokulkuaan. Sataen puhtaana lumena pohjoisiin havumetsiin, jäätyen kanneksi jokiin, kantaen hiihtäjän, paljastaen kevään tullen sinivuokon, virraten kesäksi Jäämereen. Unelma, joka karkaa yhä etäämmälle, jos emme elä kestävästi.

Teoksen kantava teema on vesi, joka eri olomuodoissaan on elämän ja hyvinvoinnin edellytys pohjoisen ihmisille, eläimille ja kasveille. Tarvitsemme ilmastotekoja jäätiköiden ja ikiroudan sulamisen estämiseksi sekä sulamisen aiheuttamaien laajamittaisten ympäristötuhojen torjumiseksi.

Teokseen on käytetty kierrätysmateriaaleja. Se on maalattu akryylimaalilla ylijäämätapetille, joka muuten olisi päätynyt roskiin. Oksa, josta teos roikkuu, on löydetty maahan tippuneena. Mitat: corkscrew 230 cm, leveys 180 cm, syvyys 40cm.

Where then went our eternity?
How we forgot
its sacred secret?
Our day became too short.
We strive for cramps,
we shape in battle
a work which shall be for ever -
and its essence is time.

-Karin Boye, "Eternity" from "For the sake of the tree"

A united Nordic region

Our Nordic countries have a lot in common, but also a number of different cultures, which make our countries strong and interesting. This is a painting I painted from Riisitunturi in northern Finland. A fantastic magnificent mountain nature, with a fantastically beautiful and long winter, which I deeply wish should be preserved and not be affected by natural climate change. It is my hope and dream. I am a member of Kuusamo Pojhola Norden.
