Malmö – Sustainable transformation of industrial harbour areas
Western Harbour / New Harbour
Come and join a guided tour of the Western Harbour and the New Harbour to experience 20 years of cutting-edge sustainable urban development and look 20 years into the future.
The Western Harbour, until the 1990’s a purely industrial harbour area, became the venue for the European housing exhibition, Bo01 – the world’s first 100% renewable urban district. The first part of this tour consists of a visit to the residential areas of the Western Harbour from 2001 through to recent cutting-edge projects. There will also be an opportunity to find out about the plans for the development of the adjoining New Harbour.
Both areas are examples of the challenges of the transformation of industrial harbour areas, such as soil remediation, sea level rise and storm water management, but also flagships for sustainable solutions in liveability, energy efficiency, renewable energy supply, sustainable mobility and biodiversity.
