NBO - Housing Nordic's Annual Conference

30th-31st of August 2018 at Scandic Hasselbacken, Stockholm

How do we contribute to UN’s Global Goals?

NBO - Nordic Housing and HSB, which is hosting this year’s conference, are happy to invite you to two exciting days full of inspiration and discussions of the big challenges connected with the development of a more sustainable housing market as well as city development in the Nordic countries. This year, we’re taking a closer look at the current trends dominating the Nordic housing market – what challenges are the Nordic countries going to face, what solutions are available, and how can we cooperate? Furthermore, we will discuss the Nordic cooperatives’ and the social housing organizations’ contribution to UN’s Global Goals. How do we increase accessibility, how do we create more youth accommodation, and how can the elderly live in a way that fit their needs? How can we reduce our energy consumption so that we can live and act more resource-efficiently? And what significance does the Nordic cooperative and social housing sector have for a sustainable future in the Nordic Countries? Together we’ll pick the winner of NBO’s Housing Award, which this year will be chosen by the participants in the conference.
