We aren’t really ones to brag, but if you want to make a difference in the future of the world, Gällivare is a great place to live. The mining industry has taken on the challenge of creating a fossil-free society, and other industries and businesses are eagerly joining the ride. Here, everything is connected, and when we go somewhere we go together.
It gets a bit messy as we remodel the city, building new homes, sports centers, schools, and yes, an entire city center designed for the sole purpose of the locals' well-being. The idea is that life here should continue to be simple and pleasant. While we are at it, we take the opportunity to create more social spaces where people can hang out, and buildings that are not only functional but also adds to the aesthetics of Gällivare.
You might not know this, but Gällivare is actually a myriad of villages, cultures, languages, and people coming together in the spirit of helping one another. We are proud of our community, and eager to welcome you as part of it. Regardless of your background, this is a place to call home. A place where people are curious of getting to know you, and where you can contribute to making it into whatever your heart desires.
As you are standing on the top of Dundret (we did mention we have a mountain just on the edge of the city, right?) and gaze towards the horizon, Gällivare appears quite modest. Beyond the center, villages and countryside spread out, and then it is just extensive and monumental nature. Views dominated by mountains, forests, and marshlands wide as oceans. But this is also our playground, our back yard. When we’re not at work, chances are this is where you’ll find us. Just around the corner from our home.
