Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, tools have been needed to deal with the complexity that arises when people flee.

On this page you will find a number of tools that can support a good integration process for newly arrived refugees. The tools are free.

The tools have been developed in collaboration with the Danish authorities, but are currently used by both Danish and German municipalities.

Partner reflections

This is one of the most innovative and system-changing efforts I have seen in Europe, working with visual collaboration to map needs, efforts, user journeys and to create a common language that can make co-creation with refugees and collaboration between stakeholders more effective.

It's projects like this that show what real collaboration looks like. It is people and stakeholders in projects like this that will help us become better together.

In the Danish Refugee Council, we see the Integration Poster as a valuable tool to illustrate and understand the many conditions that must be put in place when a refugee comes to a municipality. Among other things, we include it as inspiration in some of our courses and teaching sessions.

Background and developments

On 12 March 2022, Gentofte Municipality and Bigger Picture started a collaboration around local needs in Gentofte.
  • Test phase: Local. Rollout in Gentofte Municipality [April 22].
  • Pilot phase: National: Rollout in several of Denmark's 98 municipalities in collaboration with NGOs [April-May 22].
  • Project phase 1: Europe: The material is made available to local authorities, NGOs and other organizations [May-June 22].
  • Project phase 2: Europe: Development of dynamic online tool about job market integration in Europe [March-May 23].

Today the project has grown and other stakeholders have adapted it to local needs. One example is Munich Municipality, where the poster has turned into a "Job Market Integration Poster". 

The project is supported by foundations, institutions and private organisations. If you and your organization are interested in the project, send an email to
