About the trilogy

Urban livability is in great demand. There are however many challenges with models, mechanisms and techniques to achieve livable cities. Join “Sharing Cities – Bridging Regions” to listen, discuss and challenge the current recipes for attaining urban livability.

The Nordic countries are known for their equity and social welfare, and Nordic cities are reputed for their sustainable solutions and rank highly for their quality of life. Nordic cities are recognized as being at the global forefront as models of urban sustainability and urban livability. Out of a consciousness of the benefits of collective impact, Copenhagen and Malmö are collaborating on creating a Nordic Metropolis spanning the region, as a dynamo for the future development of the two Nordic economies and their comprehensive welfare societies.

“Sharing Cities – Bridging Regions” is three days of conferences, roundtables, study tours, spanning over global perspectives to Nordic insights, offering an opportunity to contrast, compare, question and contest the sharing and transfer of models for urban sustainability and green growth from one urban context to another.
