A 2-day session full of sparring, inspiration, knowledge-sharing, case work and an agreement of a continued strong Nordic collaboration
From the 23rd-24th of August, 2017 in Mjølnerparken, Copenhagen, Denmark
Urban spaces are crucial to cities’ functionality and social coherence. They can foster creativity and incite harmonious leisure, however, they can also constitute a collective sphere were people feel unsafe and in an increased risk or frequency of criminal acts.
How can cities ensure that its public spaces encourage a sense of inclusion and safety?
How can a housing association encourage engagement and trust amongst its residents?
How can citizens participate in the development of safe and sustainable urban spaces and local communities?
These were some of the questions we asked ourselves and each other at this session. Collectively, practitioners, politicians and experts from the Nordic Region worked towards strengthening city strategies, approaches and practises of urban spaces.
