Your Living City – Extraoadinary Expats
Serve the City’s Fiona Koefoed-Jespersen was interviewed this month by the online magazine Your Living City as part of their regular “Extraordinary Expats” feature. Find out how she came to be part of the team that launched Serve the City in Luxembourg 14 months ago…
“Starting small, the original team of 6 planned different ways to make people feel appreciated. They handed out Christmas cards, took coffee to the homeless and started making contact with local organisations to see what they could do. They were greeted with surprise and enthusiasm; Luxembourg has not had a strong ‘volunteering’ culture. This is truly a revolution and one that promises to bring the city of Luxembourg, with all its multiculturalism and differing needs, together. As a poem on the website states:
We know them by their needs.
What if we knew them by name?
Cross the line.
Serve the City.”
