Purpose and goal
The project goal is to create an environment that enables the design of a sustainable future for urban environments. The goal of the first phase of the project has been to identify how we best can meet the challenges that exist. We have identified solutions to the existing challenges and what role the project plays in these contexts. The challenges we address are the inclusive city that will prevent segregation, risk management for future climate impacts and the available city where mobility is preserved while car use is greatly reduced.
Results and expected effects
The project is assumed to have effect in the form of opportunities to develop models in which complex issues around future of urban environments can be analyzed and visualized. The initial project has led to the formation of a consortium that includes parties that are essential for the successful development of the project. We have defined clear work packages to address issues around segregation, risk management for future climate impacts and mobility.
Approach and implementation
The project has been implemented through organized workshops. The purpose of the first workshop was to present all the participants´ skills so that everyone in the project had a shared knowledge base. We identified for the project other relevant actors. The purpose of workshop number two was to clearly define the project, broaden the view and get input from other stakeholders. Based on knowledge from a number of actors active in our field, we identified the main challenges we want to attack, and how we can do this with specific initiatives.
