A short story on grassroots democracy      2019

The fishermen's prayer house chapel has been there for the longest time, the Sports Team has the most members, the Træna Festival has the largest turnover. Norway's smallest municipality with its 15 square kilometers, has about 456 inhabitants (of which about 400 in Husøy and 55 in Selvær), has about 34 clubs and associations, of which 24 are officially registered. What all Træna's clubs and associations have in common is that they contribute to identity and unity on the island.
