II.2.4)Description of the procurement:
This is an open call for ambitious, innovative and creative ideas that contribute to socially sustainable Neighbourhood for Generation in the future. Neighbourhoods for Generations are places that invite sociability and mutual support, where people of all ages are seen and valued as members of their stairwell, housing block and neighbourhood.
Due to demographic changes and urbanisation, cities and neighbourhoods are facing multiple, converging challenges including a lack of affordable housing, an increase in social segregation, poor access to health and social services and worsening rates of mental and physical health among people. In order to achieve more socially sustainable places for people of all ages, we need to rethink the way we plan, organise, live and interact in our cities. Affordable housing is an inevitable part of the development as decent and affordable housing is one of the most important requirements to be met in order to establish a good life.
We call on people of all professions, backgrounds and levels of seniority to submit ideas that can contribute to the development of the Neighbourhoods for Generations concept. From academic groups and departments, to urban strategy and design firms, housing startups, public service providers and social support services, to name a few, we encourage submissions from all relevant sectors.
Neighbourhoods for Generations offers winning ideas financial support for further development and exhibition, discussions with experts and exposure on the world stage. The winning ideasthat are developed will be showcased through exhibitions, debates, and presentations at the UIA World Congress of Architects and the Danish Non-profit Sector’s 'Almene Boligdage' - all part of Copenhagen being the World Capital of Architecture 2023, a major forum for discussing the future of our cities.
We look forward to receiving all your fantastic ideas!
