Create sustainable  cities with Ramboll

Turn Global Goals into local actions

Adopted in 2015, The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) consist of 17 goals and 169 targets. SDG 11 – Sustainable Cities and Communities - is a critical goal to ensure sustainable and inclusive development in the growing urban areas. From a climate perspective, cities are both part of the problem and part of the solution to decrease emissions.

However, to realise the Global Goals, we need local action. From government, municipalities, businesses, educational institutions, NGO's, and citizens.

As part of the Frederiksberg SDG Festival, Ramboll’s case competition brings forward new ideas on how to help The Municipality of Frederiksberg deliver on SDG 11, Sustainable Cities and Communities. Through their Sustainability Strategy 2017-2020, the city aims to be CO2-neutral by 2035 and in 2020 their emissions should cut by 50% to combat climate change and air pollution. And time is of the essence; a first-of-its-kind Ramboll study shows that Danes demand clean air in their cities but do not think cities are doing enough in this area.

So, join the SDG case competition and help Frederiksberg become an even cleaner, healthier and more sustainable place to live, work and study.
