BACKGROUND
Copenhagen has continuously been nominated the most livable, swimmable and bikable city in world and cities around the world are looking to Copenhagen for the secret recipe to shape a more livable and sustainable city. What are the secret behind Copenhagen’s success over the last 30 years?

We invite urban planners, architects, designers, urban activists, engineers and other professionals to help share insights, showcase solutions and debate how we shape more livable and sustainable cities around the world.

And while there is a lot to be proud of in Copenhagen there are also a lot of challenges ahead for Copenhagen as any other city: How do we shape cities where people can afford to live? How do we design cities where we share more and own less? How do we maintain green spaces and great public places as while the pressure to build more dense increases? How do we make world class climate adaptation solutions, that shape more liveable neighbourhoods? How do we reduce fossil-fuelled transportation in the city? How do we nudge people to live more sustainable urban lives?

Inside and around BLOX we will during the C40 Mayors Summit share, showcase and debate how we: Plan, Build and Design like tomorrow.

We are asking for proposals for debates, provocations, showcases, co-creations, games or other formats/events that can engage professionals, city delegates and the public.
