Hammarby Sjöstad 2.0 is commited to work for the climate together with residents and local players in the district. Together we have formulated a local climate goal: Climate Neutral Sjöstaden 2030. We therefore participate in research and innovation projects and in recent years Sjöstaden has become a test bed for climate change adaptation. Hammarby Sjöstad 2.0 and ElectriCITY works as a citizen driven platform for collaboration between universities, research institutes, leading companies and residents around the energy-efficient and climate-smart city of the future. ElectriCITY.
Hammarby Sjöstad attracts researchers not only from Swedish colleges and universities, but also from leading universities around the world. Hammarby Sjöstad 2.0 has the ambition of being the first choice as a Swedish node in EU projects on studies of and for sustainable urban development.
Fundamental to our commitment to projects is that it will be of benefit to those who live in Sjöstan and contribute to making Hammarby Sjöstad a forerunner in the fight against climate change.
