Open Inclusive Copenhagen
Inclusion does not mean that we should all be identical. We should all be able to access, participate, being welcome and respected in the life of the Copenhagen. We all have talents that can contribute to the city. We all have a voice that should be heard. I want a strong and firm social policy to deal with the crime and gangs. We need to *prevent* not only deal with gang violence. Also I want to to learn from other cities, such as Mechelen in Belgium, which have leapt forward with integration allowing diverse communities to live together.
I am European as well as Danish. I want to ensure Copenhagen and its administration is accessible to both Danes and its international residents. When you have made Copenhagen your home, I want to make you feel welcome and allow you to participate in shaping the city. Participation is the first step towards being included in society.
It is extremely important for me that we all have a voice in our society, I hope that you will use your right to vote and help shape the city you are a citizen in.
