    We are in Ålesund, a creative innovation studio working on second-order change within both behaviour at bigger scale and local, community-driven actions. Our main work includes strategy and communication projects (including film, design, 3D visualisation, webdesign), but we also initiate a lot of social projects.

    Since 2019 we are running one of the west coast biggest maritime clean up projects. Here we each year organise around 25 clean up actions, gathering in total around 600 people eeach year.

    This year we are also building a mulitfunctional skate ramp made out of recycled materials from ship industry.

    We also work with a lot of international projects like the UN "United for smart sustainable city" programme and the Californian based Cool Blocks that aims to create 300 carbon neutral cities within 2030.

    In general we are a bunch of young, very ambitoious people that love to work hard and to use our creative communication skills in changing our local city and potential also society on a bigger scale. We dumster dive each week, and all the food we eat the the studio is from the trashes. Each day we eat warm lunsh together, we do a lot of social stuff (like surfing, climbing, hiking, partying, play music, meditate, etc). All are around 20-28 yers old. And we drive a Tesla as a company car :P

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The team that already works here are super active people, and we would love to take you with us either rock climbing, skiing, hiking and surfing. Yeah, you can find all of that in the city of Ålesund where the project studio is situated. Also you would naturally be learning the ways of Norwegians and how the way of life is here. This including food and other typical "cultural" aspects. Everyday all of the team share a warm lunch together at 13.00, and very often during the week we prepare dinner as well.
