Island Living in a Global Age (ILGA) is a non-profit community organization that aims to network the Danish community on the island of Møn. Our project goal was to assist our sponsors in creating the concept and business strategy behind ILGA. We conducted interviews and focus groups on Møn to identify community issues mirroring trends of rural marginalization seen in global rural communities. Interviews held with the leaders of existing community organizations revealed successful business strategies. Based on our research, we facilitated a workshop wherein our sponsors developed a mission statement and business model for ILGA. These deliverables and our final recommendations can guide ILGA as it grows, making it an influential, long-lasting community organization.
