Description

The Nordic Consulates General and Danish Cleantech Hub are proud to host the conference “Arctober Goes Nordic - Integrating Design and Health in Urban Redevelopment Projects”.

Urban redevelopment projects offer the opportunity of completely integrating the built environment with design that favors human health, productivity, and renewable energy. Though these developments often come at a higher initial monetary cost, a majority of building owners in both the US and the Nordic region are willing to pay more for buildings that improve public health and productivity.

The Nordic region offers strong best practices with the natural link between design, health and livability. With the flagship project, Nordic Sustainable Cities, this is further promoted as part of the Nordic Prime Ministers’ new initiative “Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges”.

This panel session will explore how the approach towards creating urban redevelopment projects here in New York, such as the Brooklyn Navy Yard, compares to Nordic best practices within design and public health in the built environment.

The session is hosted in collaboration with the Norwegian Consulate General, Consulate General of Denmark, Consulate General of Finland, Consulate General of Sweden, Consulate General of Iceland and Danish Cleantech Hub.
