Safety and the good life

Safety is an important foundation for learning, development and a good life. Safety is often related to family and friends, but surroundings and physical settings also play important roles. It is therefore important that our towns and settlements are planned in a way that naturally includes everybody in daily life, ensuring that nobody gets lost or are isolated from the community.

Goals

  • Qaasuitsup Municipality is to focus on safety in its spatial planning by incorporating safe and secure settings for all citizens, no matter where they live.
  • Good meeting places, outdoor and indoor, encourage solidarity and provide safety. We are therefore to ensure that towns and settlements have squares, open spaces, village halls and other meeting places of good quality where citizens from different generations can get together.
  • A special effort is to be made to ensure that our children and young are safe and happy, e.g. by creating good and up-to-date play grounds and different activity areas for sports, exercise and nature experiences.
  • Safety is to be a natural parameter, e.g. in relation to the design of residential areas, public areas, path systems, school roads etc.
  • The housing supply is to be planned so that it will be possible to live your whole life in the local area – this ensures a feeling of safety.
