The Climate Resilient Neighbourhood Østerbro

The showcase for climate change solutions

Copenhagen's first climate resilient neighbourhood

The climate-resilient neighbourhood of Østerbro is Copenhagen’s first district adapted to climate change.

The City of Copenhagen is working together with the Copenhagen utility company HOFOR, Environmental Centre Østerbro and the residents of the neighbourhood on a common vision:

To turn the neighbourhood of Østerbro into the greenest inner city neighbourhood in Copenhagen and at the same time equip the area to withstand the large volumes of rain we have experienced in the torrential downpours that have occurred in recent years.

In the climate-resilient neighbourhood we are developing the methods and expertise to be used when the rest of Copenhagen – over the next 20 years – is future-proofed against heavier rain and torrential downpours.
