URBAN DEVELOPMENT

IN THE SOCIETY OF TOMORROW

You’ll find cities, districts and communities all over the country. These are all places we live, breath and work. A thorough and well-planned urban development enhance the quality of life, the business development and the environment. It is all about creating sustainable, attractive and vibrant cities and areas where we as residents thrive, feel safe and have good access to important services.

HOW DO WE BUILD AND PLAN FOR THE FUTURE?

New technology is evolving at a tremendous speed and makes it possible to think smarter when we plan the cities and communities of tomorrow. It is about making life better for the inhabitants, but also about building better and more sustainably. It’s about reuse. It’s about energy efficiency. About green lungs and smart buildings. The buildings we build will last a lifetime or longer. They must function today, but also meet the needs and requirements of the future.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, we have all struggled with the lack of social contact and met the challenges working from home or not having a job to go to. Has the pandemic given us a greater understanding of the importance of public spaces and soicial engagement? And how does the rapid digitalisation and increased use of home office affect the future development of urban areas and real estate?

Housing prices have skyrocketed and excluded increasingly many people from the housing market. In what way can real estate developers and local authorities, reduce the growth in the housing prices and at the same time secure a safe and health-promoting way of living?

At Evolve Arena we will look into the glass bowl and try to predict the trends within housing and work life, and discuss how the society should develop in order to meet the needs of tomorrow
