Jan van Boeckel
Dr. Jan van Boeckel is a Dutch anthropologist, visual artist, art teacher and filmmaker. One of Jan's areas of interest and concern are the worldviews and environmental philosophies of indigenous peoples. Together with filmmaking group ReRun Productions, he produced a series of documentaries on this subject, as well as films on philosophers such as Jacques Ellul and Arne Naess, who provide a critical analysis of the Western way of life. These films include, among others: The Earth is Crying (1987), It's Killing the Clouds (1992), The Betrayal by Technology (1992), and The Call of the Mountain (1997). 

Jan has lived for several years in Hällefors, in the forests of central Sweden, where he was an art teacher to both children and adults, and consultant on international cultural projects. He established the Cloudberry Dreams network with partners in Latvia, England, Netherlands, Norway and Sweden. The mission of this partnership is to share ideas and to explore new ways to interpret landscapes through art and creativity. Another project he took part in conceptualizing is called "Clearings in the Forest", which focuses on the cultural and mythical significance of open spaces in the woodlands.

Between 2004 and 2006, Jan has worked as Head of Communications at the Netherlands Centre for Indigenous Peoples in Amsterdam.
Inspired by indigenous peoples' cultures, his own engagement in art and art teaching practices, and his experiences of living close to wilderness areas of Sweden, Jan's interest has moved to art as a means to connect to what David Abram aptly called 'the more-than-human-world'.
One of Jan's research interests is the tension between trying to 'open the senses' whilst coping with the current ecological crisis - an issue all the more pressing when working with children.

Since 2007, Jan is member of the ecoart network. He is also on ResearchGate.

In August 2013, Jan defended his doctoral thesis "At the Heart of Art and Earth: An Exploration of Practices in Arts-Based Environmental Education" at  Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture, and Dr. Sacha Kagan acted as his opponent. The full session can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3P2PcO1Du1I

Currently Jan van Boeckel is employed as Adjunct and Program Director in Design Theory at the Department of Design and Architecture of the Iceland Academy of the Arts in Reykjavik.

Synopsis: 
On 1500 metres above sea level, on the slope of the mountain Hallingskarvet, stands "Tvergastein', the cabin of Norwegian philosopher Arne Naess. In his life he has spent nearly 12 years in this hut, where he wrote several books and essays on philosophy and ecology. In this film, Naess tells about the concept of 'deep ecology', which was first introduced by him in 1973. One of the basic tenets of deep ecology is that nature has a value in itself, apart from its possible use value to humans. Next to being a famous mountaineer, Naess has been a longtime activist in the environmental movement.

He gives an inspiring account of his participation in blockades to prevent the Alta river in northern Norway (the area of the Sami, an indigenous people) from being dammed.

With contributions by Helena Norberg-Hodge, Vandana Shiva, Bill Devall, George Sessions and Harold Glasser.

Arne Næss (27 January 1912 – 12 January 2009) was a Norwegian philosopher who coined the term deep ecology and was an important intellectual and inspirational figure within the environmental movement of the late twentieth century.
In 1939, Næss was the youngest person to be appointed full professor at the University of Oslo and the only professor of philosophy in the country at the time.
He was a noted mountaineer, who in 1950 led the expedition that made the first ascent of Tirich Mir(7,708 m).
The Tvergastein hut in the Hallingskarvet massif played an important role in Ecosophy T, as "T" is said to represent his mountain hut Tvergastein.

Hallingskarvet, winter, december 2013

Nils Fog Gjersøe: 
"Ascent of Hallingskarvet by Eime Skardet 30.12.2013. Beautiful winter conditions with Westerly winds. Also views from below Hyllun and Arne Næss hytte - Næss called Hallingskarvet "Father of the good long life" in one of his books. Finally views towards West with low sun shadows.

National Park Hallingskarvet
Hallingskarvet National Park (Norwegian: Hallingskarvet nasjonalpark) is a national park in the Norwegian municipalities of Hol (Buskerud), Ulvik (Hordaland) and Aurland (Sogn og Fjordane), established by the government on 22 December 2006.

More precisely, the park comprises the Hallingskarv plateau and the high mountain areas to the west of it, including Vargebreen and Såtedalen, plus Lengjedalen, Ynglesdalen and parts of Raggsteindalen.
The national park covers 450 km² of the Hallingskarvet mountain range and hosts large stocks of wild reindeer, an important factor in the establishment of the park.
The highest point in the national park is Folarskardnuten, elevation 1,933 meters above sea level.
The landscape of Hallingskarvet was shaped by multiple ice ages. The park shows the geological history and the connection between this history and the variation in the species living there. It includes areas of special value and which are home to threatened or vulnerable species such as Draba cacuminum (whitlow-grass) and Botrychium lanceolatum (lance-leaf grapefern).

The name
The first element is halling (inhabitant of Hallingdal) and the last is the finite form of skarv (mountain or mountainous area without vegetation).

Protection and use
The main objective of this national park is to preserve a large, unique and largely untouched area in order to protect the landscape and the biome with its ecosystem, species and populations of, amongst others, the wild reindeer. The protection is designed to safeguard a characteristic element needed to understand the geological history of the Norwegian landscape. It is also designed to protect valuable elements of the cultural heritage.
The park is open to the traditional forms of outdoor activities which require little or no technical means.
