THE MAKING OF A SMARTER CITY
Here you can find voices from all across Helsingborg, but what they all have in common is a genuine commitment to their city. Read their perspectives on urban development, opportunities, challenges, collaborations, and their plans and dreams for the future.
We live in a society of excess and we need to adapt our behaviour to consume in a more sustainable way. When a product has been used up according to the user, the product can live on in a new form with a new user – we create a cycle of resources.
The City of Helsingborg will be the first in Sweden to build a large-scale urban sewer system for waste separation in Oceanhamnen. Starting from the 1960s, the current sewer system has to a large extent been extended in stages to solve the environmental problems arising from the city’s sewage.
An innovation culture starts behind the school desk. Or rather around it. Above, under, beside, and in front of the school desk. Perhaps more specifically, in the whole classroom, the whole school, the whole municipality.
Within the enormous wood industry, both producers and researchers are searching for more sustainable binding agents as an alternative to the synthetic products used today in, for example, particleboard. Greener adhesives are needed, and that’s where we come in.
When I moved to Helsingborg, not in my wildest dreams did I think that someday I would be involved with the city, running community projects and would meet such amazing people. It all started with being wholly lost in translation in my first few months, looking for information and things to do.
In the innovation initiative that the City of Helsingborg has launched with H22, we’re aiming for big, bold changes – what’s known as radical innovation. This ambition involves two key prerequisites that clearly differentiate innovation from traditional development.
Dialogue work is about engagement, community, happiness, and trust. Happiness is an especially important aspect for me. Every person deserves to be met with a smile and a greeting. This is the moment when the potential for dialogue and a sense of community is realised.
Future analyst Troed Troedson says that the future is suddenly upon us and that COVID-19 will entail lasting changes in society. He also says that H22 has become even more relevant than before, because what kind of society do we actually want when the current pandemic has passed?
Listen to stories from around the world about the making of smarter and more thoughtful cities, designed to put people’s needs first. Urbanistica is an H22 Partner and an international podcast by Mustafa Sherif, an Urban Planner and Designer based in Sweden.
