Sami language, culture, and heritage are at the heart of our plan, and we acknowledge indigenous thought in directing Guovdageaidnu’s future. Smaller designs and ones of a much grander scale each rely on the local character of the place as embedded in the strong, beating heart of the global Indigenous community. Further, everything is designed to bring people together.
The timeline includes projects that are immediately implementable, as well as those that will require generations of unfolding, patience and anticipation. Enhanced social connections and richer layers within meeting places build a sense of community, thereby helping alleviate poverty, contribute to better health and well-being of all citizens, and allow for increased inter-generational knowledge-sharing and appreciation.
