Theme for 2024: Sustained future – a society for all?

City vs. countryside. Energy crisis. Increased sedentary lifestyle. Development and potential. Growth. 350,000 residents by 2050. Biodiversity. Digitalization. Debt and affordable housing for all. Social vulnerability and crime. Balance. How do we create a sustainable Uppsala for everyone?

We are looking for utopia and dystopia. Hope and despair. Courage for change.
