For love of Trosa nature

For love of Trosabygden

For love of Trosabygden

Today I´ve been workning for saving Trosa nature. A letter to our politicians who are far too stuck in old thinking from the 1900 century.

It was too long to translate, but here is the Swedish version. Maybe you can translate it in some parts by yourself. I’m sorry for not being able to publish the text in English.

It´s about how the building a new road through almost naturereserve nature is a very bad and unmodern idea. We don´t need the road, we need the nature.

I don´t want our future to look like this

Avbryt projekt Trosa förbifart

Avbryt projekt Trosa förbifart

In the letter to the politicians I tell them to take a look at the project with the eyes from outside perspective. So far they only worked with inside perspective and they end up very wrong with just one perspective.

In Daniel Kahnemans book Thinking fast and slow you can read about how projects go wrong when lack of outside perspective.

If your registrated to Trosa stads biblioteks e-books you can borrow the book here:

    • Ja du om vi det visste. Så värst mycket transparens och demokrati tillämpar inte kommunens politiker i denna fråga, så vi får plåga tjänstemännen med en miljon frågor efter handlingar och information för att själva snickra ihop en trolig bild av läget. Om nu projektet är så himla bra och vettigt borde det väl tåla att utsättas för kritik kan man tycka. Det tar mycket tid när demokratin inte fungerar som den ska. Det är lärorikt och fördjupar förståelsen för hur viktig den är och att den fungerar.

    • I hope so and I know we are a number of people agreeing in this issue. It’s just convincing the politicians left now. They always seems to be the last ones who get the picture. They should be the first one noticing changes that need changing development.

      • I once stopped the tear down and building of a skating rink in our town. There was a notice in the paper for anyone who had objections to the project to submit their thoughts, so I did. Everything came to a halt. I don’t think they thought anyone would object. I didn’t object to the skating rink, I objected to the secretive process. The mayor himself invited me into counsel. I went and told them that the public was entitled to a compete and detailed explanation of the process of what they were planning to do. They begged me to change my mind but I said no, not until they told me all the details and allowed it to be published in our local paper. They did that, then I signed off on the project.

          • It’s when a government decides they know what’s best and move in a direction without telling us. I was a nobody in town and yet I was able to stop everything in its tracks. It wasn’t a power move on my part, I was just mad that they had moved ahead with things without telling us a thing.
            After all, we were the tax payers who were going to foot the bill.

            • You did the right thing. That part about not telling is so true in our case about the new road. They kind of forget that there’s more people than themselves that should be right to an opinion.

            • I agree. Otherwise all the responsibility falls back on them alone if things goes wrong. They escape responsibility in such cases, but anyway.

  1. So often it is all about someone making money with no attention paid to how a project will affect the environment. Money-hungry people often seem to not care about the long-term effects of their quest to get rich. Good luck with your fight to be heard.

  2. Reblogged this on aspiblog and commented:
    More from Anna on the battle to protect Trosa from the road builders (the letter itself is in Swedish, and as it is in the post as an image I have no way to translate it, but I know that will be powerful and well written).

  3. A few years ago here in King’s Lynn we prevented an incinerator from being built because enough of us made enough of a fuss that the scheme was abandoned. This battle is one you can win.
