Seismic Sets Sail in Sweden

Seismic Sets Sail in Sweden

The Swedish Seismic national network begins work this Wednesday (21st August), with a workshop at a repurposed factory in Stockholm.

The meeting follows Sweden's three focus group meetings in Gothenburg, Stockholm and Malmö. Based on conclusions of these events, which drew a total of about 60 participants, Wednesday's discussions will centre on a few themes seen as important to Swedish urban areas:

  • access to and reallocation of urban assets; 
  • diversity as an engine for innovation and sustainability; 
  • change through participation and experimentation; and 
  • adaptability, creativity and resilience in cities.


Wednesday's event seeks to establish a national network that will gather several more times over the next two years to discuss urban challenges and ways they can be addressed through social innovation.
