And so, it has finally started! One of the greatest and most extraordinary design projects in Swedish history. A group of 38 people with different design competences and other professions, participants from 17 countries, 26 months of planning – now it’s time for the workshop! A city, Malmberget, Gellivare must move. The result of the workshop will be used as a base for City Move Innovation Center, where Swedish and international specialists can exchange knowledge and experiences.
The welcome in Gellivare has really been great. There are huge expectations for this project. And it should be. I am very much exited of being a part of this workshop. Everybody are excited and inspirited, and with all the expertise gathered, it will be interesting to see the ideas and visions that will come out of it.
