Bridge between continents and cultures

Bridge between continents and cultures
In the symbolism of the "bridge between the continents" in the west of the Icelandic peninsula of Reykjanes, which spans the rift between the Eurasian and North American continental plates (= Miðlina), the IIC sees itself as a link between continents and cultures.
