Wall of Initiatives

Silkeborg, an Outdoor Living Lab

The Wall of Initiatives

The Wall of Initiatives is presented at the Euro'Meet 2022 in Silkeborg. But these 14 chosen cases are only a few examples of Outdoor Initiatives.

Actually we have mapped more than 175 initiatives in Silkeborg which include outdoor space and nature in their activities.

The wall should be seen as a dynamic representation of the many efforts being made in the Silkeborg area as Denmark's Outdoor Capital. In the future new initiatives will be added on this website - and the existing ones will be elaborated.
