The ClimateCity is a unique example of a combination of urban development and climate adaptation. From the outset, great emphasis was placed on involvement of the local community, industry and other stakeholders, which have all contributed with valuable local insights. The process took the knowledge of the local community into account, resulting in a project where a great deal of local support, commitment and ownership was created. The Climate City consists of three sub-regions; The Forest Neighbourhood, The Avenue Neighbourhood and the Urban Neighbourhood. Each neighbourhood has special characteristics that have been preserved and reinforced though sitespecific designs. Together, the neighbourhoods contribute to Middelfart’s overall identity as the first climate city in Denmark. New blue-green urban spaces offer areas for recreation, social gatherings and physical activity across age and cultural differences. The social cohesion in Middelfart germinates in these spaces and has made climate adaptation a joint affair.
