Gemeente Jokkmokk kondigt plan aan om gratis hulp aan te bieden voor mensen die willen verhuizen naar het Zweedse deel van Lapland

JOKKMOKK, Zweden, December 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --



De gemeente Jokkmokk begint een 2 jaar durend project om mensen aan te moedigen hun levensstijl te veranderen en naar Jokkmokk te verhuizen en in Noord-Zweden te gaan wonen.

Het project heeft betrekking op verschillende overheidsafdelingen en agentschappen, samen met particuliere bedrijven en personen in de regio. In het project zijn wervingsbureaus, arbeidsbureaus en afdelingen van de sociale dienst betrokken, alsmede lokale ondersteuning voor starters en ondersteunende instellingen voor starters, de immigratiediensten van de overheid, de plaatselijke basisscholen en middelbare scholen, volwassenenonderwijscentra, lokale woningcorporaties, en vele andere organisaties, bedrijven en personen die samenwerken met Jokkmokk.

Het doel van het project is om het bevolkingsaantal terug te krijgen naar het aantal van het jaar 2000. Een kleine, maar consistente jaarlijkse daling van de bevolking van Jokkmokk gedurende de laatste twee decennia is hoofdzakelijk toe te schrijven aan jonge mensen die weggaan naar universiteiten en ouderen die overlijden.

David Carpenter die het internationale deel van het project leidt, is 10 jaar geleden met zijn vrouw naar Jokkmokk verhuisd en zei vandaag: "Jokkmokk is een grote provincie, bijna zo groot als Wales en zeker zo groot als Noord-Ierland. Het bevolkingsaantal ligt nu rond de 5000 en dit moet hoger worden. Noord-Zweden heeft een grote behoefte aan leraren, verpleegkundigen, artsen en werknemers in vele andere beroepen. De huizen zijn verrassend gunstig geprijsd en een eengezinswoning met grond kan vaak al voor minder dan £50,000 worden gekocht."

Veel mensen uit verschillende landen zijn de afgelopen decennia al naar Jokkmokk verhuisd. Het gebied is heel populair bij Nederlanders en Duitsers en meer recent is er een aantal mensen uit het Verenigd Koninkrijk naar de regio geëmigreerd.

Het project Future Jokmokk blijft vanaf nu lopen tot eind 2014. Na deze periode, als het project succesvol is, zal de gemeente Jokkmokk een permanente afdeling opzetten die het werk in de toekomst gaat voortzetten.

De gemeente Jokkmokk bevindt zich net boven de poolcirkel in Noord-Zweden. Het is de op twee na grootste provincie in Zweden en bevat het nationale park Sarek, dat op de werelderfgoedlijst van de UNESCO is geplaatst en vaak wordt genoemd als Europa's laatste échte wildernis.
