Conference followed by closing party

The Oslo Architecture Triennale closing conference 2022 focuses on urban governance and leadership. How can Oslo become a leading example for social and sustainable neighbourhood development? How can we reform our decisions to support more sustainable, socially just, and diverse urban development?

We discuss the development of the new neighbourhood of Grønlikaia that is to be built along the Oslo harbourfront. The development is inspired by Doughnut Economics - a visual framework for sustainable development - and we discuss the ethics and practicalities with author and economist Kate Raworth and Marie Indrelid Windswold, Head of Sustainability, HAV Eiendom.

Speakers include:

*Kate Raworth, Economist, Author of “Doughnut Economics”, Senior associate professor at Oxford University.

*Morten Sørensen Thaning, Associate Professor, Ph.d.. Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy, Copenhagen Business School

*Dan Hill, Designer, Director, Melbourne School of Design

*Hanne Sophie Solhaug, Head of Urban development City of Oslo

*Tarjei Pedersen, Partner and Lawyer, Kluge Advokater.

*Marie Indrelid Windswold, Head of Sustainability, HAV Eiendom

*Christian Pagh, Director and Chief Curator, Oslo Architecture Triennale

*Political representatives from the City of Oslo

The half-day conference opens for fundamental questions regarding governance models and decision making and seeks to connect them to hands-on cases and practices in Oslo. The conference points to the challenge of creating systemic change, taking on the main drivers in contemporary planning that are, arguably, capital and law. Having ambition for our cities, bringing about a genuine green transition and social change, must consider the frameworks of money and decision making.
