I paid a visit to the friendly community in the woods of Thy in the northern part of Denmark. They describe the place as following:
“Thylejren (the Thy Camp) is a free place in the sense that it contains Life, displays Life, it’s complications, it’s developments. It has space for odd characters, imaginative artists, caring mothers and fathers, shamans, horsewomen and many more. It is both part of Denmark and the society we are all part of and at the same time withdrawn from unconscious consumer’s race and “conversational kitchen’s” culture.
Thylejren is owned by the association “Det Ny Samfund”, which is organized with the general meeting (every year, Aug. 21. at 2 pm) as the highest authority, that means there is no board or chairman. Decisions are mostly taken in consensus but voting can also be seen.
Thylejren is a social experiment in it’s 47th year!”
