Panel discussion at the Sustainable City Development Conference in Malmö on the topic of implementing Agenda 2030.

On the 1st of December Urban Arena hosted a seminar at the Sustainable City Development Conference in Malmö on the topic of implementing Agenda 2030.

Professor Lena Neij, Director of the IIIEE, coordinated the seminar and welcomed six speakers: Michael Woodbrige from ICLEI, James Evans from the University of Manchester and Oksana Mont, Eric Clark, Marie-Claude Dubois and Dalia Mukhtar-Landgren from Lund University.

Interlinkages between Agenda 2030 and the realization of sustainable cities were explored along with the latest research and the key challenges. The issues and possibilities regarding implementation of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals were discussed from the perspectives of local governments and academia, from the viewpoint of densification of growing cities with regards to the public spaces and daylight accessibility, as well as the possibilities of urban sharing and collaborative governance as tools for sustainable cities.

The seminar concluded with a panel discussion which opened up discussions about the roles of different actors, conflicting interests and how to move forward.
