Sustainable Urban Solutions Conference – How a Global Community can Solve International Challenges

 

The way we build new cities will be at the heart of so much that matters, from climate change to economic vitality to our well-being and sense of community. This is due to the fact that more than half of the world’s population already lives in cities, and another 2.5 billion people are projected to move to urban areas by 2050. People from all over the world are already at work planning the cities of the future and advocating for design that’s focused on sustainable development.

Building better solutions requires political will, progressive business’ and an innovative research environment to ensure green growth and jobs. Bringing so many different stakeholders together to co-create ideas is a demanding and difficult task but far from impossible.

That is why seven Nordic cleantech clusters have decided to join forces and establish the Sustainable Urban Solutions conference on the 23rd of May, 2018.

The conference brings together 12 different cities and provides a Nordic perspective on how to solve the vast challenges we face in our future cities. We will bring together 400 international guests to meet with leading Nordic and global cities and partners to showcase the Nordic model and explore sustainable solutions. We are looking for experts, innovators, investors, cities and companies as well as other relevant solutions providers to participate in the conference.

The format of the conference will consist of:

  • Short keynotes: Presentation of cities as change makers and drivers in the green transition and explore all perspectives to inspire participants to think differently and creatively.
  • Co-creation workshops: Action-oriented co-creation workshops focusing on individual city challenges, with a mix of Nordic and International cities. These workshops will have a lead city challenge, other innovative cities, solution providers and experts and will be professionally facilitated.
