Come and visit Stavanger municipality in the square!

This year, Stavanger municipality has been given the unique opportunity to showcase everything we do for our citizens and at the same time create an arena for citizen involvement and accessibility.

will do so by occupying the market stalls, which have historically been an important meeting place for the inhabitants of Stavanger.

In the square, we will show a wide range of projects we work on, from smart art, to climate technology, green change, tomorrow’s expertise and welfare technology. A completely separate square shed is set aside for citizen involvement, where the projects can have direct contact with residents, and where residents can be involved in influencing the outcome of projects.
