In the years to come, the welfare state as we know it will face substantial challenges. On the one hand, public spending dedicated to addressing social challenges will be cut at national and local levels, and, on the other hand, the social challenges, such as unemployment, social isolation, global warming and integration, will keep growing.
We work nationally and internationally for governments, ministries, municipalities and other stakeholders on creating the right frameworks for new solutions to flourish - not through new, expensive public initiatives but through partnerships between actors across the public, private and civil sectors. An underlying assumption in our work is that there are many untapped resources in society – physical, financial and human – that are wasted every day. We work to connect these resources with uncovered needs in society and thus create new and sustainable solutions for the welfare society of the future.
