How do we counteract segregation and polarization in society?

Socio-economic differences tend to increase in Helsingborg. There are differences in, for example, health, education and gainful employment.

This has already created a breeding ground for reduced cohesion, reduced trust, the experience of insecurity and, in the long run, a marginalization that can be expressed through social unrest. The socio-economic differences are large between different districts, but also within certain districts. How can we counteract this? In what way can we address the challenge already in preschool and school? How do we increase the opportunities for self-sufficiency, security and participation?
