How do we embody our nordicity?

$20 CAD

Living in harmony with the seasons. Encouraging the locally made and locally grown. Embracing a more minimalist lifestyle. Learning to read the nature that surrounds us, in the city as well as the forest. Many of our aspirations are linked to our desire to reconnect to the land. Could nordicity help us embrace this way of life? In the face of current crises, could it infuse our daily lives with precious tools: slowness, presence, and a sense of community? 

In this issue, BESIDE explores the ways we (re)define ourselves, from Montréal to Iqaluit, from Whitehorse to Stockholm, around the notion of nordicity. These stories attest to all that we still have to learn from those who live in tune with the North.
