With population of 658,390, surrounded by the Forest, and the Oslo Fjord and connected by a number of waterways, Oslo, the Norwegian Capital, has won the European Green Capital Award for 2019.
Oslo’s approach to conserving its natural areas and restoring its waterway network is just one of the many reasons why it won the prize.
The city’s waterways have been subject to a new revolutionary strategy which has completely reversed the previous approach of enclosing these channels.
They are now being actively re-opened in order to make them accessible for people, to efficiently manage storm water and facilitate development and restoration of habitat.
Tackling climate change is a high priority for Oslo. The city aims to cut emissions by 50% by 2020 (compared to 1990) and to be carbon neutral by 2050.
Oslo has introduced a range of integrated measures to achieve these ambitious targets. In this presentation we look shortly at Oslo’s climate strategies, touching couple of themes in depth: waste management, car free center, bycycle strategy, green affordable housing.
