Video: Homeless for 24 hours in the Faroe Islands

The economy of the Faroe Islands is booming and nowhere else is that more visible than in the capital, Tórshavn. Businesses report major gains, and what once was a semi-dead capital has now expanded with sleek shops and restaurants revitalizing formerly run-down spaces.

The dark side is that the homelessness crisis is becoming more and more visible. Politicians have tried fixing the crisis – yet it’s not working, at least not well enough. Amid a housing shortage and a failing mental health care system, the everyday crisis has intensified.

Magnar Ennistíg spent 24 hours homeless as a challenge. The result can be found in the video below.
