Modern Nordic cities: ecology and sustainable development.
Loneliness of older people, floods, air pollution - cities around the world are facing massive and similar problems.
The UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development provides a framework for addressing many of these challenges. The Sustainable Development Goal emphasizes the importance of the role played by cities and communities. However, according to the organizers of the exhibition, urban solutions are not limited to achieving this goal, they are connected with others.
The Nordic countries have already developed solutions that can contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
The exhibition provides an insight into a range of solutions in the areas of healthcare, mobility, low-carbon technologies, circular economy and urban resilience, which are already being developed by Nordic architects and engineers. They follow the path of sustainable development.
The exhibition demonstrates how to add green spaces to densely built areas, how to turn parking into attractive public spaces, how to design cities with too many cars, how to bring nature back into the city, and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
The exhibition features solutions in the areas of healthcare, mobility, low carbon technologies, circular economy and urban resilience, developed by engineers and architects from Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Finland and Sweden.
