Nordvest Dialogues

Dani Hill

A HOME: how do we see expats as a resource in urban planning?

Copenhagen's Nordvest district is a neighborhood of contrasts, recognized for prized architectural landmarks and picturesque green spaces while often earning the reputation as a neighborhood with great social and economic problems.

But Nordvest deserves a closer look, and a continued directive from its residents for future sustainable urban planning initiatives. As home to an immigrant population more than double the concentration of inner Copenhagen, it's multi-ethnic diversity has transformed the vision for area renewal strategies - built from citizen-driven development with respect for Nordvest's inherent culture, history and architecture.

Let's explore the possibilities for Nordvest's future through constructive citizen dialogue!

This event provides a platform to learn more about Nordvest through the lens of expat storytellers as they reflect on Copenhagen becoming their home.
