for both climate and health in the transition to a climate-neutral city.

The feasibility study highlights climate and health as a combined driver of the city's climate transition. Measuring better health is as important as reducing climate emissions and the feasibility study lays a foundation for this through urban planning and stakeholder involvement.

The aim is to accelerate the climate transition in the city of Stockholm by mapping and preparing transition arenas in five selected geographical areas. The feasibility study includes an inventory of site collaboration, dialogue and initiatives that have been carried out, are underway or are planned in these areas to strengthen climate and health aspects. The feasibility study also carries out a social accessibility analysis to map unequal living conditions in different parts of the city, with the premise of providing greater benefit for investments and prioritizing initiatives in planning, policy and practice that contribute to both better climate and health. The feasibility study will also encourage initiatives that local actors and residents have taken, are taking and can take, and develop forms of collaboration for this.

The initiative is part of the Viable Cities call #13.
