I am a project manager and researcher at Nabolagshager. I enjoy working to find multifunctional solutions to urban challenges. Solving multiple problems at once, through design, speeds the necessary moves towards a sustainable transition. My work aims to make cities more green and more social.
I have worked extensively with Horizon 2020 projects. In addition, I have over a decade of experience working with sustainable food systems, urban agriculture, and farmers markets.
Nabolagshager works with the social aspects of sustainable development in cities. While we work with various types of green infrastructure and the social potential of them, our focus areas currently are urban agriculture, green roofs and placemaking.
Tak for Maten is a rooftop garden in central Oslo that I, along with two other students at the time, built and developed into a multifunctional exploration arena. The space was unused prior to our work, and now hosts a rooftop garden with vegetables, bees and chickens. We have designed circular economy into many aspects of the rooftop, using the resources in our local area. Through my development of a multifunctional business model, the rooftop provides employment to local, minority youth while gaining income from selling products they create, giving paid tours and functioning as an event space for rent. We are still exploring the potential business models, but seeing a space become a thriving community asset that inspires others to make cities more green and social.
