In Borlänge differences strengthen global goals

“We like challenges” is one of Borlänge Municipality’s core principles. The Chairman of the Municipal Executive Committee, Jan Bohman (Soc. Dem.), is looking to Kenya to build a partnership that will support the town’s numerous Somali refugees.
“It’s controversial, given the ongoing integration debate in Sweden, but we need to think outside the box. I believe differences enrich and promote creativity, and my hope is that our approach and their expertise will enrich Borlänge,” says Jan.
