Open Call

The National Building Fund calls for ambitious, innovative, and creative ideas to develop Neighbourhoods for Generations

Read the invitation

Axelborg,
Horsens

We believe affordable housing is a solution to create a socially sustainable neighbourhood. Høje Gladsaxe and Axelborg are two examples in Denmark. How can a Neighbourhoods for Generations concept meet the housing needs of all residents and engage across generations?

Creating a neighbourhood that is inviting for all generations is an ongoing process and innovation is required in all levels of urban planning - physical environment, social infrastructure, governance and engagement, and services systems. How can we create interdisciplinary solutions that merge and integrate different perspectives?

Høje Gladsaxe,
Greater Copenhagen

Be awarded up to 500,000 DKK to develop and showcase your idea
