WELCOME Winter Cities Shake-Up Delegates

Back To Previous Page
  • OUR VISION


    Imagine living in a place that is world-renowned for celebrating its winter climate. A city where people enjoy and relish coming out to engage with each other in public spaces. Including and particularly, on the darkest, cold days of winter. A city where streets, spaces and buildings are designed with a winter view point, where light is used to create warmth and luminescence during winter days, a place where snow is considered and treated as a valued resource. This is what the true vision of the 2019 Winter Cities Shake-Up is. It is the realization of that vision brought about by bringing together people from across the globe, who represent a wide variety of disciplines and backgrounds to discuss, explore and share best practices and to explore creative and innovative approaches for enhancing the quality of life in winter cities.

    4. Authenticity - Start Where You Stand to quote Arne Bergh


    5. Sustainable - We must include sustainability as a key element of our thinking, planning, dialogue and presentations
