My Urban Idol 2050 – The City of Gothenburg

Charlie Karlsson ()

Abstract: I have been asked to write a paper over “my urban idol 2050” to be the foundation for a presentation at a session at the ERSA congress in Bratislava in August 2012. No special instructions were given, so I have chosen to write a kind of scenario for the possible future development in the region where I live – the Gothenburg region. I have not used a traditional scenario technique with several different scenarios. Instead I present one scenario, which I have developed based upon some of the information I have about the region, ideas found in the literature in the field and ideas developed by the SWECO team during the RiverCity workshop in June 2011. Certainly none of us know what the future will bring but I hope that at least my attempt will stimulate some thinking and some discussions about urban development both in general and in Gothenburg.
