SEMINAR

The future of Nordic cities

Seminar during the Nordic Council of Ministers' Climate Action Weeks, 4 December at Norrsken House, Birger Jarlsgatan 57 C, Stockholm

Text

Urbanisation is amongst the top challenges faced globally today. As the world continues to urbanise, cities need to develop in ways so that negative impacts for global sustainability are limited.

How will the Nordics fare?

Nordic capitals are being rapidly densified. However, little is known about how such densification affects human wellbeing. Researchers from Stockholm University, University of Gävle and the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences will address social sustainability issues from a Nordic resident’s perspectives.
