Theme Group 3: Sustainable Cities and Urban Development

Making cities less vulnerable and switching to environmentally friendly transport systems and local energy solutions are key development issues for all Nordic regions and for the sustainable development of major cities. Issues related to housing, transport, and energy systems/climate adaptation are priorities for regional policy. More or less every part of the Nordic Region faces the challenges posed by the effect of urbanisation and centralisation on cities, whether large metropolises or small or medium-sized towns.
