GaiaVesterålen and Sortland Museum invite you to view the first prototype model of Vesterålen, the model deals with Øksnes and parts of Andøy. The work is part of the research project in GaiaVesterålen.

GaiaVesterålen is a research and technology initiative that aims to create more environmentally friendly and sustainable communities.

The initiative stems from an urgent need to respond to children’s expressed concerns about the future; both its own and the future of the Earth.

The Gaia initiative takes place in Vesterålen. This archipelago is the place in Europe where the Gulf Stream is closest to land.

That’s also the explanation for why people live here. Because one of the richest fishing grounds in the world is right on your doorstep.

The research in GaiaVesterålen is supported by the Research Council of Norway. Partners in Gaia’s research project are:

  • Nordland Research Institute
  • Sintef Digital
  • DeadlineMedia
  • Vesterålen IKT
  • Museum Nord – Lofotr Næringsdrift

In addition, GaiaVesterålen has a number of other local, regional, national and international partners in other parts of the initiative.
