How do we create stronger linkages between the urban and the rural parts of our regions? How can smaller cities take the lead within sustainable development? What makes them attractive? How can cities benefit from Nordic collaboration and export promotion?
Nordregio Forum 2017 looks at the small and medium sized cities in the Nordic region. What do they have in common? What challenges do they face? How can they learn from each other?
Through a series of presentations by international and Nordic key-note speakers, parallel sessions and round table discussions Nordregio aim to shed new light on these issues and bring cities, planners, policy-makers other stakeholders together - to learn, network and initiate new collaboration projects.
The event will be held in Oslo 29-30 november. More will follow in August.
