Becoming the World’s Most Sustainable City? A Look at Malmö
With around 300 000 inhabitants, the City of Malmö is Sweden’s third largest city. Together with the Danish capital Copenhagen, it constitutes part of a crossboundary conurbation that forms the nexus of a south Scandinavian region of close to four million residents. For the past couple of decades, the city has undergone a series of transformative developments that have contributed to a successive underpinning of Malmö as an internationally received example of urban sustainability efforts.
This presentation looks at examples of processes and actions that shed light on Malmö’s momentum toward increased sustainability, offering comments on various enabling factors. The city’s ambitious Environmental Programme is expounded upon, and questions of agency and legitimacy comprise a general backdrop to the discourse as such.
