Alicia Trezise-Segervall about starting up a small wool mill

Alicia Trezise-Segervall is originally from Sydney in Australia but love brought her to Vaasa in Finland and from there to the small village of Koskö in the neighbouring municipality of Korsholm. Alicia used to work with international business at large global companies but today, it is the ultralocal that is the core of her business. In Koskö’s old school building, she has started a wool mill producing locally sourced yarn. In our conversation, we do not only speak of her journey into the wonderlands of wool but also about the hurdles that exist to create local and sustainable solutions for wool products. Editing: Tommi Ranta This pod was recorded in Janruary 2019 and originally published on the site http://www.varldariomstallning.fi with an introduction in Swedish.

Om Podcasten

Worlds in Transition, or 'Världar i Omställning' as the podcast series is called in Swedish, focuses on the transitions to sustainable lifeforms that goes on in different places around the world today, where people make change happen through active engagement in their own communities. In this first series I focus on introducing the concept of 'Transition' in the Swedish speaking parts of Finland, while also making visible the people leading this grassroots revolution in this part of the world. Future pods will bring more examples from around the globe.
