Launching an Open Call for Healthy Liveable Neighbourhoods

Five Nordic cities are launching an open call for agile pilots seeking innovative solutions to support the development of healthy, inclusive and green neighbourhoods. The focus is on pilots that support the planning and use of green infrastructure and new local food related business models. The piloting programme is run by Forum Virium Helsinki in collaboration with the cities of Stavanger, Vantaa, Copenhagen and Kristiansand.

The Healthy Liveable Neighbourhoods project is seeking for agile pilots focusing on three different topics: new digital participatory solutions that support the planning of green infrastructure, block level solutions of green infrastructure and foodscapes, and new local food related business models that engage and involve local citizens and producers.

The piloting programme is a unique opportunity to co-create and experiment with the participating cities. The selected agile pilots will be carried out in the local urban labs in Helsinki, Vantaa and Stavanger during the spring and summer 2021. The total budget of the call is approximately 45 000 EUR (450 000 NOK, VAT% 0).

A total of 3-5 pilots (1-2 pilots in each urban lab) will be selected to be run during a period of max. 6 months. The call for pilots is open 3.3.–28.3.2021.

The Healthy Liveable Neighbourhoods is a pilot project of the Nordic Smart Cities Network as part of the Nordic Healthy Cities project. The project (2020-2022) is funded by Nordic Innovation.
