The Swedish city of Malmö is considered a crossroads of cultures, religions and nationalities and is generally one of Europe’s most diverse cities. According to the 2020 statistics, people from 179 different countries reside in Malmö. With roughly one-third of its residents born in another country, Malmö is a true symbol of equality, diversity and progressiveness. In 2013, another important equality milestone was achieved when Katrin Stjernfeldt Jammeh became Malmö’s first female mayor. Ever since she took office in Sweden’s third largest city, Stjernfeldt Jammeh has been working very hard to address the issues of climate change, mobility, housing, and equality. Furthermore, sustainability also plays a big role in Malmö and has grown to one of the city’s trademarks in the recent past. Malmö is widely considered as a leader in sustainable development, not only in Sweden but throughout the entire Europe. Malmo has set some of the most ambitious energy transition goals and aims to run entirely on renewable energy by 2030. In the last month of 2021, the first round of the Climate Contract Malmö was signed, which according to the mayor Stjernfeldt Jammeh is an initiative to drive the climate transition locally as well as globally together with key local actors. In Malmö, a focus on sustainability and climate protection is present in every aspect of society. For several years, the city of Malmö and Malmö University closely cooperated in areas such as research, education, and culture. The new recent agreement between the two also enhanced the cooperation in the area of sustainable urban development. In April 2021, Stjernfeldt Jammeh was also one of the speakers at the ICLEI World Congress, a global network of more than 1,750 local and regional governments committed to sustainable urban development. At the event, the mayor of Malmö was elected ICLEI First Vice-President, demonstrating the city’s leading position and impressive progress on this front. Under the amazing leadership of Stjernfeldt Jammeh, Malmö is working very hard to secure a better and more sustainable future for all its residents. The city is particularly focused on seven sustainable development goals: No Poverty, Good Health and Well-Being, Quality Education, Gender Equality, Reduced Inequalities, Sustainable Cities And Communities and Peace, Justice And Strong Public Institutions. Malmö has transformed from an industrial city to a modern, climate-smart within a very short time period, which is a major accomplishment. In 2015, Malmö became Sweden’s first city to officially commit to the UN’s sustainable development goals. Owing to Mayor Stjernfeldt Jammeh’s outstanding leadership, the city is well on its way to securing a safer, greener and more prosperous future for all its residents. (photo credit: Wikipedia)
