SymbioCity in Indonesia

The project involved cooperation between two pairs of municipalities in Sweden and Indonesia – Borås and Palu, and Helsingborg and Probolinggo – to implement SymbioCity together with the Ministry of Public Works and other local stakeholders. The overall goal was to improve capacity, knowledge and prerequisites for urban sustainability in the four municipalities by providing opportunities to learn and apply methodologies and tools for sustainable urban solutions, ultimately contributing to improved living conditions for the four municipalities’ inhabitants.

Palu–Borås objectives:
  • An established long-term municipal exchange that contributes to increased awareness and enhanced knowledge in both Palu and Borås
  • Strengthened institutional capacity of Palu and Borås to develop an urban environment that is sustainable and contributes to enhanced quality of life for the inhabitants.
  • A role for Palu as a model and inspiration for other Indonesian cities in terms of sustainable urban development and the aspiration to achieve a “green city” status.
