Urban Future Global Conference Helsingborg 22

 

Helsingborg – a mid-sized city in Sweden – is dreaming big. Not only does it want to become one of the most innovative cities in Europe, it also strives to transform its entire DNA and inspire co-creation in a more sustainable, thoughtful city. Quite ambitious, right!

So, how do they want to reach their goals?

Collaboration is key! Through the massive H22 initiative, Helsingborg is working with like-minded partners near and far, with path-breaking innovators, businesses, and academia.

They’re reinventing city governance and have launched the first municipal innovation hub in Sweden, using the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to guide their actions. An annual vision fund of 100 000 Euros allows any resident to realize their city development dreams. These and many more ideas took the City of Helsingborg into the final round of the European iCapital competition.

Want to know how they’re co-creating a smart city that puts people and planet first? For 35 days in the summer of 2022, May 30-July 3, Helsingborg invites the world to be a part of their H22 City Expo and we’re super proud that Urban Future Helsingborg will kick off the entire Expo on June 1-3, 2022. Make sure to save the date!

About the city .

Helsingborg is one of the oldest cities in the Nordic region and people have been living here since the 10th century. Helsingborg is located in Northwest Skåne, where the Öresund strait is at its narrowest and where Denmark and Helsingör are only 5 km away.
In Helsingborg, people like to go bathing all year round. In the summer, they pack a picnic and head off to one of the beaches found in the heart of the city, and in the winter, they visit one of the three cold water bathhouses. The city has an amazing range of dining experiences and is one of Sweden’s cities with most restaurants per capita.

About Urban Future .

What started as an idea for a workshop in 2014 developed into Europe’s largest event for sustainable cities in record time. Today ‘Urban Future’ still is an inspiring place to get together, but it is also a global community of urban changemakers who make cities around the world sustainable.

  • Urban Future Live Events are the #1 meeting places for CityChangers. They are here to inspire, get inspired, and personally connect with the most active people leading transitions in cities.
  • The annual Urban Future Virtual Event is hosted by several cities on different continents and aims to motivate existing and soon-to-be changemakers anywhere in the world. Co-created by more than 200 organisations, Urban Future Virtual will premiere in September 2021.
  • CityChangers.org is the virtual 24/7 home base for urban change agents. It is where they can access hands-on experience from peers around the world, share their own learnings and acquire relevant skills (to be launched in September 2021).
