THIS IS EVOLVE
Today, 8 out of 10 Norwegians live in cities or urban areas. Cities are growing and an increasing number of people and goods are going in and out of our cities every day. At the same time, roads that were previously intended for cars and transport are being changed into pedestrian streets, common rooms and bike paths. We move around with electric scooters, build buildings that produce more energy than they use and grow tomatoes in new urban farms on the city rooftop.
But how do you develop the cities of our future? What does the city look like in the future? How can the city be even better and safer? These are some of the questions to be highlighted at Evolve Arena on May 12th.
