Anyone living in Malmö or visiting during the w/c 23rd of November should make sure to mark that week (week 48) in their calendar, because that’s the week when Malmö City is launching its campaign for a more sustainable way of shopping and business called “Support your local”!
Malmö Citysamverkan is a cooperative initiative by a non-profitable organisation, made up of one part municipality of Malmö and two parts local businesses and property owners located in the centre of the town. This local cooperative is on a mission to keep the city centre alive and vibrant and help sustain local businesses – which is becoming increasingly important during this pandemic – all the while helping the environment, and supporting sustainability – including sustainable shopping and business!
The campaign during the w/c 23rd of November aims to provide safe ways to support your local businesses and counter negative effects connected to the so-called “Black Week”, that culminates with “Black Friday”. – Effects such as stress, increased returns and shippings due to people buying on a whim and, perhaps most important right now, crowding!
Throughout the year Malmö City runs several different campaigns, initiatives, competitions, provides us with tips of new venues, activities and ways to positively contribute to, and lead a more sustainable city life. For more information and tips about the campaign “Support your local” and safe and sustainable shopping check out and follow Malmö City on Facebook, Instagram and their official website. Shop safely!
