Utökad information om evenemanget

India's urban future is everybody's future. Urban sustainability requires innovative, out-of-box and at scale solutions, that are affordable, world class in terms of productisation, service orientation and last mile delivery. Additionally, they will have to be finely attuned to the country’s unique and diverse sociopolitical and cultural environment, while contributing positively to the overarching framework of UN:s Sustainable Development Goals. Such solutions have also to be acceptable to a variety of stakeholders and have the capacity to integrate with both public and government institutions and market-focused companies. The seminar will discuss the challenges of India’s rapid urbanization, from technology to lifestyle, while at the same time looking at pathways and models from the Scandinavian ecosystem that can facilitate the creation of sustainable solutions for urban life and living.
