Climate neutral Gothenburg 2030

Tram in Gothenburg

In order to meet major societal challenges such as climate change, the pace of conversion and cities' ability to develop solutions for tomorrow's problems needs to increase. There are no technical solutions to achieve climate change, but transformative capacity and institutional capacity in cities for the new system solutions.

Mobility in the city continues to have significant climate impact, while ongoing extensive urban development in Gothenburg provides good opportunities for change. A concrete innovation case develops proposals on how adaptable political governance of a city, which works in step with the outside world over time, may look like. In the project we intend to analyse how Gothenburg's digital twin, Virtual Gothenburg, can be developed so that more climate-related and behavioural data is used in the model. We also intend to test and Virtual Gothenburg can be a catalyst in the transition process and thus contribute to more impact in operator collaboration and to increased quality of interaction with citizens.
