Partners

Gentofte Municipality
Tasked by the Danish government to handle local integration process for Ukrainians arriving in Denmark
Today, the municipality's employees use the poster for the first meeting with refugees, where they get their own copy. The reception has been very positive both among staff and refugees. It brings structure to the Danish process they are in. We are now in the process of developing several similar tools. 
Torben Frølich, Municipal Director
REDi School 
Bringing skills, network and knowledge around integration in Europe
This is one of the most innovative and systems-changing efforts that I have seen in Europe, working with visual collaboration to map needs, efforts, user journeys, and to create a shared language for making co-creation with refugees and collaboration between stakeholders more efficient.

Whereas most support goes in to direct help of refugees right now, it would be highly valuable to also invest in the infrastructure and the coordination between all the humanitarian and integration efforts out there. As well as to develop concrete and scalable collaboration tools which can be used in the future.

Bigger Picture
Bringing visual method and tools to help create understanding, clarity and action
We often say that visual collaboration is needed when faxing complex situations. Understanding the larger whole paves the way for meaningful action - and engaging everyone in reaching shared ground is key to success. And...Using visuals can bridge differences in language and cultures.

With family and friends from Ukraine we saw a need and purpose in bringing our skills and tools forward to see if what we preach can bring value to a project like this.
