Project Description: The cost of significantly reducing global emissions is limited to around 1% of of the world’s GDP. In 2009, Norway will donate the entirety of the projected 3 trillion kroners (approximately 1% of world GDP) contained within the pension fund to reduce global emissions. With the pension fund spent and decreasing oil reserves, Norway will be forced to sell its next largest and most notable natural resource: The Norwegian lifestyle.
Our project begins in Svinesund, a dynamic and ephemeral territory on the edge that perpetually interrogates the WAY WE LIVE; the perfect place to confront our own identity and distill, what many think is an extremely desirable lifestyle, into a super concentrated re-manifestation of sustainable urbanity…packaged and ready for sale. Technological city-Unesco World Heritage Site-Densified field of Norwegian values…sans simulacrum

Promotion: The cost of significantly reducing emissions is limited to around 1% of global GDP. In 2009, Norway will donate the entirety of the projected 3 trillion kroners (approximately 1% of world GDP) contained within the pension fund to reduce global emissions. With the pension fund spent and decreasing oil reserves, Norway will be forced to sell its next largest and most notable natural resource: The Norwegian lifestyle.

We could spend The Norwegian Pension Fund to solve the three most important problems that we face concerning the environment today: Fresh water, energy, and preserving ecosystems.
