Chapter 1 - What is a city and why?
We recently launched the book Predicting the Unpredictable – a Nordic Approach to Shaping Future Cities, written by Jonas Gustavsson, President and CEO and Helena Paulsson, Head of Urban Development.
The book is a voice in the discussion of how to plan smart, sustainable and attractive cities in times of rapid development. In this book we explore different aspects of urban development. What makes a city attractive, what has worked in the past and how can we plan for a future that is unknown? With regards to mobility, safety, housing, culture, technical development, sound and light – is there a recipe for success? The book includes food for thought, dos and don’ts and interviews with inspiring people in the forefront of development in their respective fields.
