Nordregio Forum 2017: Nordic Cities– Connecting the Urban and the Rural

 

WELCOME TO NORDREGIO FORUM AT VULKAN IN OSLO 29 - 30 NOVEMBER

How do we create stronger linkages between the urban and the rural parts of our regions? How can smaller cities take the lead within sustainable development? What makes them attractive? How can cities benefit from Nordic collaboration and export promotion?

Nordregio Forum 2017 will further examine these questions from the perspective of small and medium sized Nordic cities.

Nordregio Forum is also an arena for discussion and networking during parallel sessions and roundtables. The results will feed directly into the new thematic group on Sustainable cities and urban development, established by the Nordic Council of Ministers – and the Norwegian chairmanship programme “Attractive Nordic Cities”.

Nordregio Forum is the annual meeting place for professionals and policymakers working with urban planning and regional development in the Nordic countries. It is a forum for exchange of ideas and trends, for sharing new knowledge, examples and experience, and for pushing national and regional policy agendas by learning from each other.

We hope to see you in Oslo 29-30 November. More information will be published soon!
