SLA was chosen to facilitate a think tank consisting of experts from different fields to develop a solid framework for Copenhagen’s green identity and future urban nature. This development catalogue is the result of these deliberations and explores different perspectives and existing knowledge about nature-based urban development and implemented climate adaptation projects in Copenhagen.
The Copenhagen Model is introduced as a concrete development tool that promotes and qualifies the decision-making process in all phases of a project, which ensures that urban nature’s potential is realized within the framework of the individual climate adaptation project.
