The municipality of Ørland in Norway has decided to join the network of Solidarity Cities. We have great concern for the welfare of migrants all over the world. We are committed to a refugee policy based on humanitarian principles and to offer arriving refugees a quick path to integration. We believe that every child and adult has a right to a peaceful life with equal opportunities and with participation and protection against discrimination. Ørland is joining the Solidarity Cities Initiative because we believe in responsibility and solidarity, and in the power of standing together with like-minded cities.
