SHARING CITIES BRIDGING REGIONS - international confernce

Nordic City Network afholder sin europæiske konference i Malmø om ny nordisk byudvikling i 2010’erne - the next urban supermodel? Globalisering. Økonomisk krise. Konkurrence fra BRIK lande. Velfærdssamfundet under pres. Arbejdsløshed. Centralisering i byerne …

Hvad skal vi leve af i fremtiden? Hvordan ønskervi at leve? Hvilke værdier sætter vi højt i vore byer? Hvordan udvikler vi byernes velfærdssamfund? Hvordan skal være byer indrettes og fungere? Hvordan giver vi alle en mulighed for at bosætte sig i byerne?

Konferencen skal præsentere og diskutere den nordiske byudvikling, der foregår netop nu – i 2010’erne. Ny nordisk byudvikling, som den foregår i disse år, er et forsøg på at give svar på de udfordringer og spørgsmål, vi står overfor. Fornyelsen må bygge på den særlige nordiske samfundsmodel og de værdier, der er knyttet til den. De må være grundlaget for byer, byudvikling, bysamfund og bykultur.

Den nordiske samfundsmodel er en social innovation, der bygger på folkeligt engagement, ansvarlighed og demokrati. Den er karakteriseret af tillid, samarbejde og kompromis. Den leverer både vækst og velfærd. Høj løn og livskvalitet...
Den nordiske samfundsmodel er for nyligt i The Economist omtalt som ’The Next Supermodel’, som hele verden opfordres til at tage ved lære af. Mange mennesker lever allerede i dag i byer – eller i regionale bysystemer. I løbet af de næste 10–20 år vil næsten alle mennesker leve i byer. Verden bliver urban. Den nordiske samfundsmodel bliver urban.
