Describe one of the projects you are most proud of
Name Project: Growing multicultural communities. The goal of the project was to build a bridge between the green movement in Oslo and vulnerable socially excluded groups. City challenges addressed during the project: 1) Social Inclusion: include and connect people in the most multicultural neighborhood in Oslo; 2) Climate change adaptation at the grassroots level: educate and share knowledge with people about urban gardening, local and seasonal products, healthy and sustainable lifestyles, circular economy and reused materials; and 3) Access to public spaces and resources to promote green and livable cities
