Closed: The circular region

The circular region: fall 2019- spring 2021


In the megaproject entitled The Circular Region, students from different fields of study work together to achieve an ambitious goal that points directly to the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Northern Jutland must be the first circular region in the world. The megaproject is a collaboration with the municipality of Aalborg. The megaproject ends summer 2021.

If the region is to succeed in implementing this strategy, this will require a deep understanding of the dynamics which promote and, probably just as importantly, the dynamics which prevent the circular flow in Northern Jutland. Students from different fields of study will engage in interdisciplinary work aimed at finding solutions to these issues.

The megaproject has the following structure:
