Urban Communities - Changing Nordic Cities?
Urban Communities - Changing Nordic Cities? Publikationen dyker djupare ner i begreppet "urbana gemenskaper" och ger en perspektivering av den kartläggning av urbana gemenskaper som genomfördes av nätverket 2015.
With this publication the Nordic City Network wishes to emphasize citizens potential in shaping the future development of Nordic cities. Today, urban development is a result of different forces coinciding and each in their own ways shaping the making and experience of our cities. Active citizen groups represents one of these forces. But how can we understand this potential? An important first step is to take a close look at the many different ‘urbane fællesskaber’ (urban communities) across the Nordic region. In 2015 the Nordic City Network did a preliminary mapping of the many different urban communities in the member cities of Nordic City Network. As part of a broader initiative Nordic City Network wishes to mobilise the many active citizens in the Nordic cities as well as facilitate discussions and test new ways of using this force as a means towards more livable, innovative and democratic cities in the Nordic region.
