We are


 

Our mission


We want to help you enjoy the city better! And work to bring out the best in everyone

Urban Beings specialises in urban design and strategic urban planning. We are inspired by the people who live, work, play and move around the city, so our work is very people oriented to make sure that our city is both beautiful and work well for those we are designing for.


What we do


Research and Design

We are curious urban geeks. We understand what the current challenges and trends are so that we can suggest a solution that is both practical and innovative

Learn More

Events

The city is for the people. We help people to take part in the design of their city. We also organise events to engage residents to learn more about their city

Education

We love learning. So we like to inspire architecture and urban design students to be conscientious placemakers of the future

Being Stockholm


Being Stockholm is a digital public engagement project to map geotagged photos and illustrate how the Stockholm region is used, what is currently happening in the city and how is it developing.

The objective is to inspire residents to try out new activities and explore new parts of the city; promote the city's growth areas, document how it's changing and used by residents; and work with corporations to create a softer landing for newly relocated international professionals.

We are at an early stage in developing this project and would love to work in particular with public authorities in urban development and economic growth, major employers with international employees and curious Stockholmers who wish to inspire fellow residents or be inspired!


Be an early tester of our concept!
Share some of your favourite photos of how you work and play in Stockholm!
(Geotagged photos only)



Get involved in the project!
Sign up onto our mailing list if you'd like to be involved in the project as:

- A strategic partner to promote the city region, and economic growth,
- A major employer recruiting international professionals
- An international professional who has relocated to Sweden
- A Stockholmer to test the new platform

Green Drinks is an informal social where everyone who is interested in green issues can grab a drink and mingle with like-minded people. You can talk about anything that you think has great environmental credentials such as your organisation or project or even a great product or service that you know about with fellow Green Drinkers - in either English or Swedish.

Come by yourself, but even better take a friend or a colleague or two - anyone who you think would also enjoy a Green Drink with us!


Join us!
