About the organization
Aspöja archipelago has been pointed out an area for resident population and for tourism, this in order to secure a continual resident population, with farming and fishing in conjunction with modern technology and environmentally friendly housing. The pilot area is situated south of Arkösund and down to the east side of Aspöja.
In order to keep this archipelago cultivated and grazed as it has been for generations, a sustainable development is vital when planning for a resident population. This project, with strong research in sustainable community planning and in collaboration with stakeholders is crucial. What is special with this area is how to try and reach out to stakeholders that represent national interest. Without this funding there will probably not be any development in this area.
Bergön, part of Aspöja archipelago, is a former coast artillery facility. It is strategically situated between Arkösund – Stora Kopparholmarna – Bergön – Lånjö – Aspöja, which is close to Norrköping municipality’s pilot area in the project. The planning of Bergön as a sustainable residential and tourism destination will secure local job opportunities as it will also make the archipelago easier to access all year around, and over time. This will help the municipality to increase the possibility for a culture driven and living archipelago, while securing the marine life over time.

The landowner (project partner) is deeply engaged in the area and has founded Aspöja Skärvårdsförening (archipelago management association). We hope our particular competences and know-how will help for a successful implementation of the project and looking forward to participating and make learnings from our fellow citizens around the Baltic area within this project.
