The Nordic Consulates General and Danish Cleantech Hub are hosting “Archtober Goes Nordic- Nordic and US Trends within Healthy Cities at Building Level .”The theme of this panel discussion will be how design and human health go together with a trans-Atlantic focus on making cities healthier to live in. The session will examine how Nordic Sustainable Cities- a flagship project in the Nordic Prime Ministers’ new initiative “Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges”- can complement building certifications such as Fitwel, and initiative by the Center for Active Design in early 2017.

This event starts at 4 pm, and will be held at The New School at 66 W. 12th Street.
