Greater Copenhagen is a collaborative organisation promoting growth and development in the largest Nordic metropolitan region, encompassing 4.3 million citizens in Southern Sweden and Eastern Denmark. Through alliances and pilot projects we are building the foundation for future growth and welfare. Our goal is clear: Greater Copenhagen will be a global hub for growth, sustainable solutions and innovation.
Our work to achieve this goal is anchored in partnerships, which we see as the key to development and innovation in Greater Copenhagen’s 85 municipalities and 4 regions. We promote cooperation between our members and create alliances at both the regional and international levels, connecting knowledge hubs, businesses and public institutions.
Climate change, pandemics and global economic crises pose a serious threat to growth and welfare in any metropolis. However, at Greater Copenhagen we also see opportunity in these challenges, because the region has huge potential for growth and development by embracing sustainability and green solutions.
Some challenges we solve independently through pilot projects intended to pave the way for innovation and new development opportunities. Other tasks are tackled through alliances and cooperation with external partners from the business and public sectors.
Greater Copenhagen’s efforts are directed at 5 key areas, which are essential to the framework for our future growth and welfare:
