Smart Planning for Healthy and Green Nordic Cities: Citizen engagement & participation bringing technology, people, and nature together
How are human wellbeing and access to green spaces co-created and integrated into city planning? And how can investment in and by cities jointly support multiple urban objectives to be liveable, equitable, resilient and contribute positively to regional and global sustainability?
In this EU Green Week roundtable event, we share our ongoing work across the NORDGREEN and SMARTer Greener Cities projects funded by NordForsk.
We will discuss what it means to engage citizens in systems-oriented approaches to green planning processes and the implications for multi-level governance across the Nordics and Europe more broadly. The session also brings forth experiences and perspectives from researchers, practitioners and city representatives working to leverage the potential to improve sustainable places, health and well-being for people and local communities.
