Urban Future Global Conference (UFGC)
ÅF is Top Partner at UFGC, which is held on 22-24 May in Oslo.
This is the first time UFGC is held outside of its home country Austria. Oslo has been chosen because it is the European Green Capital 2019.
The conference gathers around 3,000 CityChangers for many exciting lectures and field trips, including the Munch Museum, Deichman Library and Holmen Swimming Pool to name a few of those we have been involved in.
ÅF is Top Partner - what do we do?
As Top Partner, ÅF is visible in the UFGC's communication before, during and after the event. In addition, Helena Paulsson, Head of Urban Development, Karolina Pamp Sandgren, Strategist Combined Mobility and Head of ÅF Lighting in Norway Morten Jensen are speakers at the conference.
Workshop on sustainable urban development
As part of the program, together with Oslo Kommune (Oslo Municipality) and the Oslo Business Region we invite to a workshop where we gather many important players from the industry. We wish to facilitate a good discussion about the reduction of plastic and the development of attractive urban areas.
Based on this, we will explore the possibilities of conducting a pilot project with the ambition to reduce all unnecessary plastic, contribute to the use of the right plastic and ensure sustainable disposal in a certain urban area. This is in line with Oslo's recently adopted action plan for plastic pollution and our Making Future strategy.
If you are in Oslo, come visit us!
ÅF will have a great stand at Clarion THE HUB where we conduct a survey on what makes cities attractive. The stand is in solid wood with environmentally friendly print and is totally paperless.
