UP2030 : Urban Planning and design ready for 2030

Project Details


UP2030 aims to guide cities through the socio-technical transitions required to meet their climate neutrality ambitions. It will do so
by enabling a quantum leap from a ´business as usual´, project-by-project decarbonisation approach to a vision-driven, strategy-based
approach that is anchored on sound projects and renewed policy development. The approach uses urban planning and design as a vehicle
to create better connected, more compact, net-zero neighbourhoods in the city pilots – i.e. neighbourhoods that promote liveability and,
through designing with intent, promote mitigation action
