The Midgard Expedition Explained On Foot.
Welcome to My Blog – Bjørn Heyerdahl
I studied human nature in the hardest of workshops. It was during my year sentence to detention and community service as a conscientious objector in the mid–eighties in apartheid South Africa that I began to explore firsthand the nature of organizations and the individuals within them.
This interest led to further, more formal, research and study, on my release, and ultimately the development and launch of a series of personal, corporate, and community development programs. My passion for finding solutions and working models of intelligent sustainable human habitation lead to the launching of the Midgard Expedition and working with eleven different African communities to provide such models.
This research and exploration has led to the development of a biospheric design system. These programs and design systems have expanded with the needs of the clients, communities and eco-systems they serve.
Through the Midgard Expedition I have sought an intimate knowledge of the reality behind the symbols of science.
Less is more – in terms of sustainability of our biosphere and ethnosphere. We don’t need more of anything we need much, much less.
