Across three days in May 2017, the City of Aarhus will be an international hub of knowledge, expertise and sharing of best practice on responding to the global challenge of radicalisation and violent extremism.
The event will bring together the Strong Cities Network Global Summit 2017 and the Building Resilience to Radicalisation and Violent Extremism II conference, hosted by the Municipality of Aarhus / East Jutland Police in partnership with the Strong Cities Network and national and international partners.
This important partnership between mayors, governors, local policymakers and practitioners, as well as academics and specialists, offers a unique opportunity to share and develop local and municipal practice, prevention and resilience around the world.
Plenary sessions with high-level speakers will give participants unparalleled access to innovative local approaches to building inclusive communities resilient to the threat of hate, violence and division manifest in all forms of violent extremism.
Sessions will also highlight important bilateral city partnerships and frameworks through the Strong Cities Network, and in-depth workshops will develop substantive discussions, networking and inspiration for all participants.
For those interested in learning more about the Aarhus Model and the Danish approach with a focus on early prevention and building local resilience, there will be an ‘open house’ event for visitors the afternoon before the conference alongside events run by the Strong Cities Network on Wednesday May 17th.
The conference fee is 2200 DKR, approximately 300 EURO. Travelling expenses to the conference and accommodation is not included.
