Something just happened. The Matchmaking Zone in Klitmøller is through to the next round of the Realdania campaign, Places Matter. The project is one among 26 project ideas that'll receive support for further development. The project was selected from a total of 88 project ideas.
"We are very pleased to get an opportunity to develop our idea. We see Cold Hawaii as a journey where the next step will be created by people who have a special relationship with a very special coastline. For us, today marks one of these steps. We look forward to working with Realdania," says Rasmus Johnsen.
The idea is to create a co-working space for 7-10 established companies and approximately 50 temporary casual users on a monthly basis. It will create relationships between, or "match", professionals and entrepreneurs living inside and outside Klitmøller, Cold Hawaii.
The project was selected for further development because it supports the current operations and caters to the existing needs of residents and visitors. The project will make it easier and more attractive for (visiting) surfers to stay in the area. The project also shows how a positive development that has already started can be supported.
The process going forward now looks as follows:
- March 4: All selected project teams participate in a co-development workshop.
- August 18: Each selected project team submits its proposal for how to realize its idea.
- October 2014: Winners will be announced.
- November 2014: Realization starts.
