Welcome to One Step Beyond! We are an international group formed in 2009 with the goal of increasing the public’s knowledge about how to live more sustainably. From May 19th until July 20th, we visited 7 ecovillages and 4 urban neighborhoods in Norway, Sweden and Denmark, documenting the innovations happening in them. Our film and sound crew collected over 50 hours of footage, which they will be editing into a documentary film, whereas the other team members experienced community life by working in the gardens, kitchens and fields, spending a summer that involved less consumption and energy use and more simplicity through everyday contact with nature.
Breaking news: One Step Beyond to be hosted in Norway at the freshly opened Solskinnsfabrikken, “The Sunshine Factory“.
