Lunch seminar - Integration, inclusion, deprived areas and urbanisation
During our lunch seminar in Oslo last week, experts and clients from Denmark, Sweden, Germany and Norway learned more about how different Nordic cities work with deprived areas, inclusion and urbanisation.
Several municipalities and metropolitan areas, both in Norway and in the rest of Europe, have in recent years developed different methods for working with urban community development and integration. Common to the chosen areas is that they are characterized by major socioeconomic challenges and have a higher proportion of immigrants than other areas.
The case of Holmlia
The backdrop of the seminar was, among other, an analysis of Holmlia South, which Ramboll Management Consulting in Norway carried out for Oslo Municipality. The assignment combined physical and socio-cultural analyzes and the purpose of the project was to describe what characterizes Holmlia South as a place to live and grow up (See the evaluation here) . The analysis forms the basis of the municipality’s identification and prioritization of goals and measures that will be included in the further development of the Holmlia area.
Physical efforts are important to secure sustainable development
