Sólheimar is a sustainable community where about 100 people live and work together. It was founded in 1930 by Sesselja Hreindís Sigmundsdóttir (1902-1974). Here the emphasis is on the growth and development of people and nature. Individuals are able to work, live and socialise in an environment that they may not have had the opportunity to experience elsewhere. Sólheimar runs on the concept of reverse integration: a society in which the needs of those with disabilities are central, and those with less disabilities adapt.
