Living: engagement actions
Check out what we are doing in the framework of Vejle's Cities2030 lab below. We work with a combination of actual experiments where we have defined specific goals and actions with local stakeholders, but also engagement activities where we find opportunities to meet and listen to the needs of different stakeholders and their interests of collaboration on Cities2030 themes.
Finally we work to align the Cities2030 agenda and platform to the policies and development strategies of Vejle municipality.

However the platform is open for engagement and the Cities2030 Lab is using the framework to meet and engage with food-related retail and food service to identify potential ideas and stakeholders for experiments.
