Press Invitation: The City as a Solution for Change, theme during the Stockholm Sustainability Summit

Ahead of Stockholm+50, the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce invites an open symposium on the city as a greenhouse for innovation and green change.

The world’s major cities account for a significant portion of the climatic footprint. At the same time, groundbreaking innovations and new technology are being created precisely in and around cities. During the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce’s first sustainability summit, we will help knowledgeable experts and speakers highlight the city’s role in going green.

The green cities will be the winners. New solutions that change the way we build, travel and live will be critical to dealing with the climate crisis. We want to give inspiration to all those who are building the cities of the future to take on additional responsibility in a changing time, says Andreas Hatzigorgio, CEO of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce.
