Our Cultures is moving to Norway from England via Europe
16 August 2020 – 21 Januar 2021
Down below are articles about Our Cultures moving up north 300 km above the Arctic Circle to Norway. To help you better understand what is going on it is perhaps better to put it this way.
The Organisation Our Cultures is at the moment run by two people Jozef and Méline. We have decided to move from England due to a few reasons. One of them is to start our family in a society that is considerate towards its people in terms of equality (see our research). And, to let us and our children to be influenced by a culture that is thoughtful of the natural environment supporting them and other co-existing life forms.
There are more reasons worth to mention. Nevertheless, we feel that it would be better to discuss them with you if you’re interested as they are also political. Just get in touch with us and we’ll be more than happy to chat with you.
The last thing to mention is that the blog will be updated about every two weeks.
With no more delay entertain yourself on unexpected turns we have to face or the flow of situations and people we meet together.
Nothing is impossible, it just takes longer : )
After several months of the pandemic delays, we’re still in Sheffield. Our plans have changed again as our fully packed van broke down. This happened shortly after we left our tenancy ready for the journey.
Relationships that are overcoming borders, distance and time
As we mentioned in our last post, the first challenges were a good experience. They taught us how to deal with stressful situations and work together despite. However, without the support from our Sheffield friends things wouldn’t have been as smooth.
But if we left the ego behind, whenever possible, we would realise that it can help to break the vicious circle to new ways of thinking and acting. Thus bring a better life to us all, if you like.
Family and stories
The importance of family and stories we tell to each other. Who tells them and how. The time we spend together and what comes next.
Scandinavia, nature and working manually
We loved being active outdoors nearly all day long surrounded by beautiful scenery: mountains as far as the eye can see. Being in touch with nature and working manually was so refreshing from the more predominant work behind the desk we usually do.
The last part of Our Cultures’ journey, Tromsø
We spent 2,5 months in which we traveled through 10 different countries, altogether covering a distance of nearly 10 000 km and here it finally was: the city of Tromsø.
