Rapid Urbanisation – a Challenge for the Resilient City

Technical visit: Ecocity district Augustenborg
Augustenborg is a district which, when founded around 1950, was a model area for modern and future-oriented housing construction in both Malmö and Sweden.  By the end of the 1990s, the area had become a socio-economically deprived city district, which also suffered problems from recurring floods in heavy rain and negative impact from nearby industry. This resulted in a major urban transformation process which, thus far, has turned the area into a leading example of successful socio-ecological transformation with many innovative and ingenious initiatives. These include blue-green nature-based solutions for stormwater management and interesting complementary sustainable urban development.

Our sustainable future seen through 10 years of local and global experiences

Technical visit: Science Center Malmmö Museer
Welcome to an innovative and unconventional science centre where technology and natural science meet cultural history and social sustainability!

Science Center Malmö Museer focuses on learning for sustainable development in a broad sense using the museum, the surrounding city and the sea as areas for education, learning and exploring. A clear connection to the new global goals is embedded in the activities. We will connect the content of the visit to the dialogue seminar and all four round table discussions.

Study tour to ESS – the next-gen­eration research facility


Friday 2 December, 12.00 -4.00 pm

The European Spallation Source (ESS) is one of the largest science infrastructure projects being built in Europe today.

ESS will provide the tools for analysis that will enable the next important discoveries in nanotechnology, life science, pharmaceuti­cals, materials engineering, and experimen­tal physics. It is understood that ESS, both through the research that will be performed there and the establishment of the facility it­self, will serve as an economic driver for all of Europe.

Organised as a European Research Infra­structure Consortium, or ERIC, with Member Countries throughout Europe, this next-gen­eration research facility is being built through the collective global effort of hundreds of sci­entists and engineers. ESS is expected to deliver its first neutrons by the end of the decade, with the user program to follow in 2023.

The facility is being built in Lund, 15 km from Malmö. SCD delegates can join a guided tour of ESS as part of the conference program. Maximum 50 delegates. Our bus will take you quickly back to Malmö Live after the program at ESS and then straight to Copenhagen Airport with estimated time of arrival 6.00 pm.
