Ekostaden Augustenborg (Eco-City)

Ekostaden Augustenborg (Eco-City)

Ekostaden Augustenborg is a unique process where existing, older urban areas have been redesigned and improved in close collaboration with residents and stakeholders in the area.

Augustenborg was built at the end of the 1940s and began to be transformed into a sustainable neighbourhood in the late 1990s. During a guided tour of Ekostaden Augustenborg, you gain insights about the development that has taken place in the area and work carried out towards it becoming a more sustainable neighbourhood. 

We visit Augustenborg´s Botanical Roof Garden and see how green roofs can be designed. In the residential area, we look at the open stormwater system with dams and canals that have solved Augustenborg´s flooding problems. We look at energy conservation, solar energy solutions, waste sorting and transport. 

In Augustenborg Eco City, Malmö City collaborates with Augustenborg´s Botanical Roof Garden that, in addition to guided tours, offers in-depth technical visits and an opportunity to enhance your knowledge within an area of interest.

In-depth technical visit 
The technical visit begins with a guided tour of the roof garden and the residential area. A lecture is then held and a small workshop within one of the in-depth subjects.

You can choose from the following themes: green roofs and facades around the world, green roofs and urban biodiversity, energy - renewable production and energy saving, storm water management and the creation and development of Augustenborg Eco City.
