The other Kópavogur

Power to the people
People with low income, pensioners, immigrants, the disabled, and the impoverished will become directly involved in the control of the city.
Housing for all
The city should itself establish a building association to build apartments for people and families who are most in need.
Down with wage slavery!
It is indefensible to build up an education and welfare system in which the staff is paid wages that don’t meet the cost of living.
Down with outsourcing
All city employees should work directly for the city and not for an employment agency or sub-contractor or in any other way that decreases benefits.
Welfare programs will be strengthened
Senior citizens and the disabled will receive the services that they require and desire so that they can live with dignity.
Class-free education and activities
All children should have the same educational opportunities and benefits regardless of the financial situation or national origin of their parents.
Effective public transport
The routes and service of the bus system must meet the needs and expectations of the people who use them.
