Askersund City Council receives its tenth “Flag of Cities and Destinations for All”

The city of Askersund was awarded for the tenth consecutive year with the "Flag of Cities and Destinations for All” 2017. The investment in actions and projects of Design for All in 2016 was staggering 76 % of the investment budget.

The biggest investment in Askersund ever is Sjöängen, a new center for culture and education, with Primary school, library and the Big Hall, a venue for over 500 sitting visitors functioning as concert hall, cinema and theater. Sjöängen was inaugurated in November 2016 and is the main reason why Askersund reached 76 %.

The Flag of Cities and Destinations for All 2017 was handed over to Askersund at an event for local entrepreneurs October 24th, held in the Big Hall at Sjöängen.

“The concept of Design for all is a good method in creating a socity without barriers, a society for all of us. I am very proud to accept The Flag of Cities and Destinations for All for the tenth consecutive time”, said Per Eriksson, Head of the Askersund Municipality Executive Board.
