Nordregio Forum 2017: Nordic Cities - Connecting the Urban and the Rural

Wednesday, November 29, 2017 (All day) to Thursday, November 30, 2017 (All day)

How do we create stronger linkages between the urban and the rural parts of our regions? How can smaller cities take the lead within sustainable development? What makes them attractive? How can cities in the Nordic countries benefit from Nordic collaboration and export promotion?

Nordregio Forum 2017 will further examine these questions from the perspective of small and medium-sized Nordic cities.

Nordregio Forum is also an arena for discussion and networking during parallel sessions and roundtables. The results will feed directly into the new Thematic Group on Sustainable cities and urban development, established by the Nordic Council of Ministers as part of the Nordic co-operation programme within the regional sector – and contribute to the new initiative “Attractive nordic cities”, part of the Norwegian chairmanship programme of the Nordic Council of Ministers for 2017.

UBC Sustainable Cities Commission will be involved in one of the thematic parallel sessions:  Redeveloping brownfields in the Central Baltic region via our Baltic Urban Lab project. During the parallel session, Baltic Urban Lab's workshop will be held.
