social media, conversations and debates? Is there anything to our prejudices? Are we more alike than we think, or are there actually big differences?
If Oslo is a city divided, does it actually matter?
Many young people of today have a clear affiliation with urban district they come from. Others could care less about being categorised. Regardless, the way in which we label each other has consequences.
