As the airport will be relocated, there are about 300 hectares to be transformed. The scale makes the impending process one of the biggest planning tasks in Bodø in recent times. Our vision is in line with the UN Sustainability Goals as well as the national and local goals for a climate-friendly social development. Collaboration and sharing key elements of the strategy and untraditional links between functions can provide synergies and added value for the entire city. We propose three circular identities for Bodø:
Sustainable industry and connectivity
Production of clean energy in interaction with other social functions and measures
Social robustness and adaptability
Workplaces created by new and innovative industries based on circular economy
Establish an interaction with nature that provides good outdoor spaces, sustainable food production, experiences and knowledge.
Bodø’s mobility strategy calls for a change of attitude; from a car-driven city to a pedestrian-friendly city. By offering efficient routes between the city’s destinations, our goal is to get as many people in Bodø to choose walking and cycling instead of the car. To achieve this, an important focus for us has been optimizing the streets in the new city in terms of microclimate to make walking and cycling as comfortable as possible.
We hope our project provides inspiration and useful input to the municipality, the population and other shareholders.
