Nordic Sustainable Cities exhibition

2020/10/08

Project duration

16.09.2020 – 29.10.2020

Background information

From loneliness among the elderly to urban floods to air pollution – cities around the world face enormous yet similar challenges. The UN Agenda 2030 provides a framework for solving many of these challenges. The Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 11 specifically outlines the crucial role that cities and communities play. But as this exhibition shows, urban solutions are not restricted to Goal 11, but connected to many of the other goals. The Nordic countries are dedicated to the UN Agenda 2030 and already have solutions that can contribute to the fulfillment of the SDGs.
