This report investigates the experiment of 1974- 1976 called “Krejbjergplanen”. This experiment, led by philosopher Poul Bjerre, sought to try new forms of living in, and organizing a community.
The experiment was based on his theories on society and his human-ecological value philosophy presented in his authorship.

Knowledge about his theories was found in the books he wrote and information about the project was found through his own writings, articles and interviews with his widow Tove Bjerre, and the symbol for opposition towards the experiment, former Chairman of Krejbjerg Borgerforening Ivan Andersen.

The report also seeks to compare his visions to present day actuality. The ideas of the cooperative movement 2.0 is investigated, analyzed and compared to the cooperative community of Krejbjergplanen.
The methods used to investigate these aspects were interview, literature review, document analysis and scenario building.

The report concludes, that the experiment of Krejbjerg failed, because it lacked the support from the local community, and that the cooperative movement 2.0 shares ideals with the cooperative community of Krejbjergplanen. It further concludes that the time might be right for new experiments in how people live in organized communities in Denmark.
