Yesterday, we took part in a youth council meeting in @sarpsborgkomm. Listening to politicians, city professionals, and 40 young people leading the conversation on how to keep the city safe from extremism and ensure a good summer despite #Covid_19. What a wonderful digital world.
We are proud to announce the appointment of Anja Dalgaard-Nielsen, renowned scholar of terrorism, as chairwoman of Nordic Safe Cities. She will bring valuable academic expertise and practical experience within preventative efforts and counterterrorism http://shorturl.at/akzQX
Yesterday, the Norwegian Foundation announced special support for summer activities for children and youth in 2020. Due to #COVID19 not all are looking into a good summer. With 50 million NOK @Gjensidigestift hopes to change this. Proud to be partners.
Noen har færre muligheter enn andre til å reise bort og oppleve nye ting denne sommeren. Derfor inviterer Gjensidigestiftelsen små og store organisasjoner i hele Norge til å søke om midler til tiltak for barn og unge. https://www.gjensidigestiftelsen.no/50-millioner-til-sommertiltak-for-barn-og-unge/
