Nordic Innovation proudly welcomes urban developers from the Nordic region and beyond to a half-day conference where we, together with Nordic and international high-level speakers, will be unwrapping the Nordic model and its role in building the cities of tomorrow. We will discuss how the Nordic region can contribute to more sustainable, smart and liveable cities in the world – at the same time boosting our own competitiveness and export.

The conference will take place in a talk-show format, combining music, movies and inspiring discussions. As we believe in the power of face-to-face meetings, there will be plenty of time for networking both before, during and after the event.

Host: Pellegrino Riccardi

This event is hosted together with:

  • Danish Architecture Center
  • DogA
  • Archinfo
  • ArkDes


The conference is co-financed by Nordic Innovation through the Nordic Sustainable Cities project, and is one of several events and activities promoting Nordic solutions to urban development challenges to relevant stakeholders outside the Nordic region. 

Nordic Sustainable Cities is one of six flagship projects under the Nordic prime ministers’ initiative Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges. The prime minister’s initiative is coordinated by the Nordic Council of Ministers and promotes sustainability and progress toward the UN Sustainability Goals.
