Who are we?
The Warm Welcome Society is a citizens’ initiative started by the non-profit organization GIVISME and lead by Thomas VovemoD. From day one, there has been strong support from the city’s higher education institutions (Aarhus University, VIA University College, Business Academy Aarhus, Danish School of Media and Journalism, Aarhus School of Marine and Technical Engineering and Aarhus School of Architecture), as well as the municipality, each of which has helped to develop and promote the project. In addition, there has also been extremely strong support for the actual welcoming committee consisting of 72 free time communities as well as the many citizen hosts who will be greeting the city’s new inhabitants.
Warm Welcome has been a great example of cooperation between citizen initiatives and municipality and fits perfectly with the Active Citizenship Policy that was created by the municipality of Aarhus, together with 700 citizens in Aarhus.
All these players are now ready to give the new citizens a really warm welcome and invite them into the city’s many exciting opportunities for socializing and free time activities.
