The Stockholm districts that are getting a facelift (and why)
Stockholm is the fastest-growing capital in Europe. But as the population increases, there's work to be done to make sure the growth has positive effects.
One way the city is addressing its burgeoning society is by building for better social integration.
It's something that Mia Lundström, a Stockholm-based urban planning consultant, has made her top priority for the past several years.
“Without social integration, people don’t meet each other or come to understand different cultures. This leads to conflict, which in turn causes a lot of damage both financially and on a personal level.”
Following the successful regeneration project she ran in Jakobsberg, a district in the Järfälla Municipality, Mia is now turning her sights towards Kista in the north-west of Stockholm.
Find out more about her plans to breathe new life into the area, as well as how other organisations in the city are building for social integration.
