Are you an ‘ildsjel’?

“Active agents in Norway are referred to as “ildsjel,” a word which literally means “soul of fire.” It is attributed to someone who has a burning commitment for their community. These are individuals who are strongly engaged in activities locally, and initiate and carry out activities for the benefit of their community, ranging from starting up festivals, to building community buildings, and starting up businesses.”
