La Convivencia

July 26th, 2011

The Spanish concept of La Convivencia, or Living Together, emphasizes the shared experience of living and working in today’s urban societies. This was the lived experience of Norwegian youth before the horror on Utøyo Island.

But Norway also inspires. As Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg said, “We will never give up our values. Our response is more democracy, more openness, and more humanity.”

We take this to heart as we announce our upcoming season. This Fall Cities of Migration hits the road with a lens on city leadership and how local authorities contribute to inclusive, open cities. From procurement and zoning policies to city services, look out for new ideas and a chance to submit your city success story to the mix.

In October you’ll find us in Seattle at the 4th US National Immigrant Integration Conference with an international Marketplace of Good Ideas.
