About Stockholm City at Smart City Expo:
The success of Stockholm is an integrated and holistic view of city planning, close ties between public institutions, private enterprises and academies in combination with stringent regulation. Stockholm’s long-term goals are to be fossil-free and climate-positive by 2040. In the City of Stockholm, we refurbish old buildings, build new energy-efficient houses, try new sustainable transports, and use digital solutions to reduce environmental impact. Stockholm is where tech meets sustainability – and the city manages to grow its GDP and decrease emissions at the same time.
This year the City of Stockholm has also invited collaboration partners from various development projects we run or are involved in, for example, Stockholm’s Senseable Lab and Digital Futures. We also collaborate with other Nordic countries and participate in several panel discussions, seminars and workshops with participants from all over Europe.
