The government wants input from the population in order to find and reward Norway’s most attractive city or town.
“We need vibrant and attractive local communities across the country. To show the best examples, the government will award a prize to Norway’s most attractive city or town,” Minister of Local Government and Modernization Nikolai Astrup (H) said.
Now he and the government are asking for input – and everyone can nominate candidates on the project website.
“If we are to use the whole country, we need strong small towns and attractive local communities that can function as power centers in their region,” Astrup, who hopes for many nominations from small towns and villages, said.
The emphasis is on sustainability, innovation, good planning, and cooperation between businesses, the municipality, and the local community.
“We are looking for places that contribute to achieving the sustainability goals by investing in a better environment and health for the inhabitants, and well-being, pride, and belonging,” Astrup concluded.
