Overview Et fritt liv
Simen Tveitereid and his family moved out of town to a smallholding in the countryside. There they were able to work less and enjoy more freedom in their everyday lives. Was it what they had hoped for? And what if everyone else did the same? Such a life represents a break from the norm of our time for a valuable member of society who contributes to growth by having a full-time job and a high rate of consumption. In a personal and discursive essay, Tveitland considers the smallholding dream in one of the world's wealthiest countries.
