  12. 12. Ethnography  for  Cultural  Planning  •  “A   dynamic   and   adaptable   planning   process   is   to   a   large   extent   ‘sustainability’.   Not   only   the   physical   organiza<on   of   the   area,   but   also   its   ambience,   its   cultural  and  func<onal  content  have  been  dealt  with   in   order   to   create   The   Tolerant   City.   The   different   districts   open   themselves   to   a   great   variety   of   people   and   a   future   life   as   yet   unknown,   while   they   interweave   with   the   rest   of   Helsingborg,   psychologically  as  well  as  physically.”     (Helsingborgs  stad  2009,  p.104).
