“Sustainable cities are inclusive and accessible urban environments that offer people an attractive and green environment. With proximity in distance, it is easy to go on with sustainable transports, like walking and biking. Overall vision in planning and using smart solutions contributes to cities where people can live climate friendly, healthy and safe. “
This is how The Swedish Government defines the issue of sustainable urban development. At the same time, the Council for Sustainable Cities has recently been established. The chairman is the architect Monica von Schmalensee.
You’ll meet her at the NCEW-event How can you change your city? on May 22, 1.15 pm to 3.00 pm at Studio in Malmö. She will talk about the importance of engaging citizens in urban activities to achieve more sustainable development. Register here!
