Together with the City of Podgorica, the Embassy of Denmark organized a 'Smart City and Urban Solutions' conference in Podgorica, on Wednesday, June 6th.

The conference gathered around 80 participants, while some of the biggest Danish companies presented their solutions for making cities more sustainable and liveable. You can download the full agenda here.

"Denmark is internationally recognized for its green profile as well as its leadership and excellence within the field of integrated urban solutions, many of which are inexpensive and simple. For decades, we have promoted a high degree of liveability, healthy environments and general economic prosperity. Not to mention that Copenhagen is creating what will become the first CO² neutral capital in the world! We believe that Montenegro, a country with a strong Euro-Atlantic agenda, is a good place to start implementing some of the solutions you will hear about", stated Ambassador Hougård in his opening remark.

As special guests, the Embassy brought three Danish experts to talk about smart city solutions they have implemented in their environments:

Thomas Lykke Pedersen, the mayor of Fredensborg and Karsten Søndergaard, the mayor of Egedal, both showed that even small municipalities can and should be smart.

The Conference was closed with a key note speech by Per Boesgaard, who presented his vast experience in supporting the development of Nordhavn.
