"Dealing with the past & Planning for the future - turning urban brownfields into possibilities" Baltic Urban Lab final conference

The conference will present the results of the project and discuss how cities around the Baltic Sea region can tackle better challenges related to brownfield redevelopment. Challenges in brownfield redevelopment are similar across borders: fragmented land ownership, large amount of stakeholders involved, lack of common vision or conflicting development visions, the technical, geological, and financial difficulties of remediating contaminated land as well as questions about responsibility. Close cooperation and partnerships between different actors from the beginning of the redevelopment process are key to tackle these challenges.
