Met with the young and promising Icelandic Cultural Minister Katrin Jakobsdottir, around 35 years of age, and learned that they are working on a new Design Policy for Iceland. Also the Finns are starting to work on a new Design Policy. And a couple of days ago I wrote about the new Danish report and visions, following the evaluation of their design policy a few years ago. Sweden is falling behind in this race I'm afraid. Anyway, I am on my first visit to Iceland and Reykjavik - not like anything else I have seen. Amazing.
|The say that the sky is never blue, and that there are no trees in Iceland, I guess we were lucky. We were told however that the city has changed a lot recently - lots of new trees and lots of new tourists|
