Since 1947, The Finger Plan has set a special planning framework for the development of the capital area, which does not apply to the rest of the country. With a clear ambition to put the quality of life first, we have developed 5 suggestions for how the capital area can meet the challenges and needs that mark our times.

We believe that cooperation, new nature, a balanced development, new ways of building, living and financing, and an obligation of the building sector to support regional quality of life can ensure a future capital area that is both liveable and accessible for everyone.
