NORDIC SAFE CITIES 2020 HIGHLIGHTS - Nordic Safe Cities
In @Larvik, there is a very special Christmas tree decorated with the wishes of local children and young people living under the poverty line. The local community chooses which wishes to grant & delivers the presents through the Red Cross.
1/2 Every week 100 children and young people between the ages of 7 – 25 meet to practice together for the Fargespill in @Larvik. Fargespill sees every person as a resource because everyone has qualities that others can learn and gain from.
.@Larvik has been part of the NSC since the beginning. The city continues taking an active role in preventing extremist hate & violence, and prioritises giving the youth a clear role in shaping a cool & safe city for young people to live.
This week, the #SafeCityTour travels to @Larvik. Hear why the city is part of NSC, how the city involves the local community to support vulnerable families, & how the city empowers local youth to build bridges & create a safer city through the Colour Games and #KomINN initiatives

Safe City Tour: Preventing Violence in Reykjavík - Nordic Safe Cities
In @reykjavik, youth work is inherently preventative. At Flotinn, the roaming youth centre, the core principles are active participation, democracy & human rights.
Learn more about Flotinn & how Reykjavik works to empower local youth in the thread below.
Flotinn is a roaming youth centre for young people in
@reykjavik, and is a part of the Dep. of Education and Youth. Flotinn brings youth workers to young people as the youth centre “moves” across the districts of the city.
The Reykjavík Metropolitan Police have worked hard to stop the violence, shutting down SoMe accounts that host these videos, informing parents and guardians and encouraging youth to stop taking part in and sharing violence. @logreglan @NordicSafeCity #SafeCityTour
In @reykjavik we have, as elsewhere in the Nordics, seen youth instigating, partaking in and recording violence and posting it on social media. A problem often missed by parents who aren’t aware and aren’t using the same SoMe platforms. @logreglan @NordicSafeCity
