About Urban Insight

Urban Insight – a knowledge platform where we bring experts together to develop new innovations, ideas and solutions on how to plan and design sustainable cities and societies.

Urban Insight explores the impact of various European urban structures on citizens’ ability to satisfy needs and preferences, and the way in which these needs and preferences dictate how we choose to structure urban areas.

Designing attractive, functional urban areas requires innovative thinking, an understanding of the European perspective, and in-depth knowledge of what works locally. Taken together, this means having Urban Insight.

Urban Insight is a long-term initiative with a different theme each year. The theme for 2022 is Towards Circularity

Sweco plans and designs the sustainable communities and cities of the future. Together with our clients and the collective knowledge of our 18,000 architects, engineers and other specialists, we co-create solutions to address urbanisation, capture the power of digitalisation, and make our societies more sustainable.

Urban Insight is based on a number of insight reports written by Sweco’s experts. These insights will be shared throughout the year in a series on this Urban Insight website. The reports are meant to inspire and to open up for discussions. Global and local initiatives will be organised during the year to engage people who are interested in the topics.

Have fun exploring our reports and please share your thoughts and ideas with us! Ensure that you have the right knowledge to deliver the best sustainable solutions.
