This is the main question being explored by urban planners and experts on the second day of the ”Sharing Cities Bridging Regions” conference, hosted at Ramboll’s Head Office in Copenhagen.

The three day conference zooms in on how to create urban settings that make cities great living in. The event brings together over 150 urban planners, decision makers and professionals in the field of housing and planning from all over the world.

– To develop liveable cities, we need to find smart and sustainable solutions. The conference is a clear-cut opportunity for decision-makers and specialists to share their knowledge and turn best practice experiences into concrete ideas, says Lars Ostenfeld Reimann, Group Market Director for Buildings in Ramboll.

The International Federation for Housing and Planning (IFHP), the Nordic City Network, and the Danish Architecture Centre have initiated the three-day conference. One of the main aims is to facilitate international knowledge sharing and the practical application of experiences from Nordic Cities, which are widely recognised for their sustainable solutions, high quality of life, and good governance.

The participants will also examine international perspectives and cross-sector approaches to the financial challenges and implications of investment in green development.

Nordic models as inspiration

Ramboll Group CEO, Jens-Peter Saul, is opening the second day programme and is participating in a roundtable discussion focusing on the case of the Copenhagen and Malmö ‘Nordic metropolis’ as a model for green growth and regional integration.

The conference is the latest in a series of city agenda-setting initiatives supported by Ramboll, including DK2050 that looks at concrete scenarios for life in Danish cities in 2050, and Sharing Copenhagen, where the Danish capital is sharing best practices within sustainable development and liveability.
