Demographic changes in the Nordic Region are keeping pace with the global unprecedented urbanization trends of the 21st century (State of Nordic Region 2016).  Such demographic changes are compounded by increasing climate change impacts, resource scarcity and population growth and challenge Nordic cities' and regions' resilience and sustainability efforts. The Nordic Built Cities Challenge responded to the needs of the region by contributing to the development and scaling up of innovative solutions for livable, smart, resilient and sustainable cities.
