Thank you to EcoDistricts for giving Nordic City Solutions and our Project Lead Pamela Tiller the opportunity to share some inspiring cases from the Nordics on "Making the World More Sustainable One City at a Time".
It was a fantastic and engaging way to share some business cases with our North American partners. Special thanks to Brionte McCorkle and her team for hosting everyone, and for the University of Minnesota, City of Saint Paul and City of Minneapolis for the warm welcome to their city!
The rapid pace of urbanization affects millions of people around the globe, posing challenges for health, safety, and the environment. It also creates a growing global demand for solutions for the urban environment. Nordic City Solutions is a flagship project under the Nordic Council of Ministers and the Nordic Council's "Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges" initiative that seeks to shed light on this challenge from a Nordic perspective. Five Nordic governments have come together to share a City Solutions platform, connecting key strategic stakeholders in North America with service providers in the realm of healthy, resilient and smart cities.
