From the loneliness of the elderly to floods and air pollution, all the world's cities face enormous challenges. The UN 2030 Agenda provides a framework for overcoming the challenges. Goal 11 sustainable development emphasizes the crucial role of cities and communities. However, as can be seen in the exhibition, urban solutions are not limited to the mentioned goal 11, but are related to many others. The Nordic countries are seriously committed to the UN Plan 2030 and are already offering solutions to contribute to sustainable development goals. The Nordic countries are already on the road to a more sustainable future. Our exhibition provides an overview of solutions for health, exercise and CO2 reduction, the circular economy and resilience. We hope to inspire you to join us on this journey.


The exhibtion is brought to viewers in co-operation with our good partners the Embassy of Finland, the Embassy of Sweden, the Norwegian Embassy and the Danish Embassy.
