The increased urbanization due to population growth in a context of climate change must be tackled through innovative solutions and further digitalization. French and Swedish cities are currently experiencing rapid growth and thus facing capacity issues (accommodation, infrastructures, public transportation) as well as concerns regarding sustainability (energy efficiency, waste management, and water treatment, electric vehicles, etc.). Both countries have already taken ambitious steps to answer the need for more sustainable and smarter cities. In France, the ambitious Grand Paris project aims at tackling mobility and accommodation issues. In Sweden, new innovative green urban areas such as Hammarby Sjöstad proved that fully integrated sustainable cities are today a reality.

In this context, the theme “smart cities” was selected as one of the key pillars of the French-Swedish Partnership for Innovation and green solutions signed by President E. Macron and Prime Minister S. Löfven in November 2017.

The conference is organized by the French Chamber of Commerce in Sweden with the support of the French Embassy in Sweden (Regional Economic department and the French Institute) and is structured around 5 sessions:

-  Global approach to mobility
-  Green Building
-  Energy and Smart Cities
-  Housing policy, social inclusion and citizen participation
-  Resilience and sustainability

Swedish Minister Per Bolund and French Ambassador David Cvach, will open the conference.
