What Makes North Denmark Attractive?
The region is attractive and has many things to offer such as small cities and a large international city with affordable housing, many small and medium sized companies with a demand for specialists - and less competition on the job market.
Furthermore the city offers a flexibility with quiet areas for families and a center of the city with life and pubs. And it is cheaper to rent a flat in North Denmark than Southern Denmark, Central Denmark, and Copenhagen. Thus the area is known for its own university (Aalborg University) which is a great place and employs a lot of people.
Aalborg takes the societal change to become more green and sustainable quite serious. There is a Center for Green Change organizing a lot of sustainable projects to create change
. For the 5th year its annual Sustainability Festival for companies, citizen and civil organizations organized by the Municipality of Aalborg included food markets, bike trips, organic brunch, energy advice, workshops and presentations on sharing economy, sustainable buildings, self-driving cars and UN-goals for sustainability. Getting the awareness and moving people towards sustainable living
is relevant in Aalborg.
