During the last decades, cities around the world have been growing at a rapid pace. This has put pressure on the lived environment and little time and effort have been put into combining multiple uses into liveable communities.

This is why Sweden has put a big focus on a holistic view and an integrated process. We know that this is the very formula we need to achieve liveable and attractive cities.

Together with speakers, we will discuss trends and solutions and show examples of liveable and multifunctional streets from Sweden.
