From Iceland — Seeking Ideas On Improving Þingvellir

Seeking Ideas On Improving Þingvellir

Published June 22, 2011

The Þingvellir National Park wants suggestions from the general public on how they can make the park a better place to visit for tourists and Icelanders alike.
In a statement to the press, Ragna Árnadóttir, chairperson of the Þingvellir Committee, said, “We can be proud of Þingvellir, its special nature, history, and cultural role. But we should not hesitate to ask: are we happy with Þingvellir as it is today? Can it be improved? What do we want to keep the same, and what can we add?”
The committee is open to any and all ideas which answer these questions.
If you have suggestions to submit, you are asked to write them on white A4 paper, at no more than four pages. You can use both words and images. You can submit as many times as you like, although each idea needs to be submitted separately. Your name and contact information should of course also be included.
The mailing address for submissions is:
Alþingi – Skáli
150 Reykjavík
Deadline is 16:00 on 22 August. Five ideas will be chosen by the committee, and each one will be awarded 200,000 ISK.
