Final conference

, Events


On Thursday, 12th February the final conference of Green Citizens of Europe took place. The hundred people who attended the conference got to listen to lectures as well as song and dance entertainment.
The event began with dancers in green costumes who took to the stage. The dance show was conducted by the Ballet Academy in Umeå. The dance performance was followed by a film viewing. The film about Be Green Umeå directed by Martin Jonsson summarizes the project's most central parts in 17 minutes. Alexander Ståhle, CEO of Spacescape, gave a talk about the future state of traffic, where he defined a smart city as a place with high interaction at low cost.
After the break with a nice snack buffet, Elin Pietroni, director of comprehensive planning Umeå Municipality, started by giving a local character based on urban planning and transport, and how we can work with behavioral impact. The project's success formula and results were presented by Caroline Mattson, Traffic Consultant Trivector, as well as how many citizens Be Green Umeå has reached out to during the project.
