In the first episode of The Green Exchange we are focusing on Sustainable Development within Urban City Planning from within the “Transition Arena”- how to engage stakeholders on a common vision and drive results.

The Urban Transition movement is rapidly progressing in the Øresund region. Still, our cities face a number of challenges across most sustainable development programs. Combining all stakeholders’ interests is one of them and playing with conflicting visions can be tricky business. In this episode, we will review findings from the DRIFT/MUSIC project involving 5 cities in Holland, UK, France, Germany and Belgium. We will talk to city officials and researchers who will share experience on how to move from a visionary innovation ‘impulse’ to an anchored vision and a solid plan supported by all change agents. We will be talking to Chris Roorda from the Dutch Research Institute for transitions, Christer Larsson- Director of Urban Development at City of Malmö, Tina Saaby- Chief City Architect at City of Copenhagen, Nora Smedby- PHD at Lund University researching Sustainable Urban Development and Casper Harboe- Director at Sharing Copenhagen 2014 and European Green Capital, Naja Poulsen- Project Director Urban Transition Øresund.

Transition Management in the Urban Context Manual
The guidance manual from DRIFT offers an introduction to how cities can approach transition management to address climate change at the local level. This governance approach aims to create spaces for new paradigms and practices in order to influence the pace and direction of societal change dynamics. The intention behind this guidance manual is to inspire and guide city officers who work on creating a sustainable future for their city.
