“Ripple Effect” (“Ringvirkning”) is the name for the project initiated by the Norwegian Association of Local and Regional Authorities (KS) which entails the need to rethink the role of agriculture in local community development.
Agriculture has the potential to make important contributions to local community development, such as:
- Increased job opportunities
- New dynamic industries
- Welfare services and experiences for benefit and pleasure
A single action may not seem like a big deal, but can have strong ripple effects within the community.
As requested by KS, Specifique developed a model and learning tool consisting of a Dialogue Mat and a digital platform. This established the foundation for an exciting and unique brainstorming session, in the search for opportunities within the municipality.
The target group for the project is Norwegian agricultural municipalities, often represented by political leaders (mayors, councillors, etc.) and local businesses.
