Dugnad is a norwegian word which means getting together and working for a common cause or to help a person. It is an unpaid work and voluntary. It is very usual in local communities and organizations. A dugnad can also be helping a neighbor or a friend painting or renovating his house (in exchange for some beer. Heheheh)
Last Saturday, we went to a dugnad at Skjeberg. Everyone who own a boat parking space were there. It is also a very social thing. Going around talking to the neighbors. I enjoyed it very much but I did not stay very long because I was not dressed well. The wind was fierce that day.
