Welcome to Svanholm.dk

Svanholm is an intentional community located near the village of Skibby, 60km from Copenhagen on the isle of Sealand in Denmark.

Our basis is formed by common ideals concerning ecology, income sharing, communal living, and finally, Self Government. We are still a part of the outside society, we invite our nabours to harvest-marked, Christmas-marked, etc., and we participate in commitees and the social life in the schools and local area, as well as some of us join political parties, NGO’s and global movements. Realizing some of our ideas of a better society at Svanholm can actually give us inspirations to formulate goals and strategies for the outside society for which we also feel a responsibility.

On the following pages we try to explain a bit more in detail how our community works and why we think it is "good" living the way we live.
