With climate change accelerating, climate adaptation is becoming an increasingly important topic for the world’s cities, which continue to grow and contribute immensely to global emissions.
While transport-related public space in cities is too often neither sustainable nor effective, Nordic cities have pioneered world-leading solutions for transforming public space which, apart from helping reduce transport emissions, improve air quality and create more inclusive spaces, have also brought clear benefits in terms of climate adaptation.
The Urban Climate Adaptation in the Nordics (UCAN) project run by EIT Urban Mobility will showcase inspirational examples of public-space and street transformation projects in Nordic cities that have also contributed to climate adaptation.
Get your solutions published!
Would you like your city’s solutions to be featured in an inspirational catalogue published jointly by the Nordic Council of Ministers and EIT Urban Mobility?
Nordic and Baltic cities are now invited to submit examples of public-space and street transformation projects that have also contributed to climate adaptation. The selected submissions will be published for free in an online catalogue that will be disseminated internationally to inspire and support other European cities in their green transition.
How to submit?
Register yourself on the Mobility Innovation Marketplace of EIT Urban Mobility and submit your example of a relevant project concluded in a Nordic or Baltic city in the past five years.
What do you get out of this?
- Position your city as a mobility front-runner;
- Inspire and support other European cities in their green transition;
- Feature your activities on a European platform;
- Get your successes published in a beautiful catalogue and disseminated on the channels of the Nordic Council of Ministers and EIT Urban Mobility.

This project has been funded by the Nordic Working Group for Climate and Air (NKL) under the auspices of the Nordic Council of Ministers. The Nordic Vision is to become the most sustainable and integrated region in the world by 2030. The co-operation with the Nordic Council of Ministers must support this purpose. This project supports the vision on green transition and Nordic solutions within the areas of climate neutrality and climate adaptation.
