Want to help shape the future of green cities and create sustainable solutions to climate challenges on a regional level? Join the Nordic Cities Workshop, held in Malmö, Sweden from the 28-29th of April, 2016.
Climate-KIC works to create consistency between private, public, and academic initiatives on climate change. Their goal is to find solutions to environmental challenges through cooperation between sectors – and to help green startups grow. Now, they are hosting an ambitious Nordic Cities Workshop in Malmo, in cooperation with Malmö Stad, Gate 21, Trivector, Vinnova, where future climate solutions will be discussed at the regional level.
The workshop in Malmö is part of the event series bringing together representatives from various Nordic cities and other government agencies, industry, and academia to collaborate and create innovative solutions to the challenges that climate change brings.
The purpose of the event series is to bring together all relevant stakeholders in the field of green cities to share knowledge on:
- Which climate challenges the Nordic cities are facing
- Create solution-oriented projects
- Match these projects with funding opportunities
- Identify potential consortia with Climate-KIC will run projects
It is particularly important for Climate-KIC to get the entire Nordic region to work together across borders and find common solutions that benefit the environment which can be used in several Nordic cities.
Nordic Cities Workshop in Malmö
The Nordic Cities workshop in Malmö is for anyone with an interest in smart cities, climate-friendly urban design, urban strategy, and climate specialists from all over Europe who want to be part of the action – and who have interest in contributing to inter-regional cooperation and finding financing possibilities for green projects.
The workshop in Malmö will primarily focus on ‘Mobility’ and ‘The built environment’.
Mobility is, according to Climate-KIC, one of the biggest challenges for urban sustainability. The constant movement of people and goods is responsible for emissions, noise pollution, and excessive land use. When we construct new green and dense cities, it is critical to consider accessibility.
“The built environment” as a focal point covers improving cooperation between the public sector and landowners, and thereby find some innovative and climate-friendly solutions for greener cities.
The registration deadline is April 18, 2016
