We are


Our mission

We want to help you enjoy the city better! And work to bring out the best in everyone

Urban Beings specialises in urban design and strategic urban planning. We are inspired by the people who live, work, play and move around the city, so our work is very people oriented to make sure that our city is both beautiful and work well for those we are designing for.

What we do

Research and Design

We are curious urban geeks. We understand what the current challenges and trends are so that we can suggest a solution that is both practical and innovative

Learn More


The city is for the people. We help people to take part in the design of their city. We also organise events to engage residents to learn more about their city


We love learning. So we like to inspire architecture and urban design students to be conscientious placemakers of the future

Being Stockholm

Being Stockholm is a digital public engagement project to map geotagged photos and illustrate how the Stockholm region is used for work and play.

The objective is to inspire residents to try out new activities and explore new parts of the city; promote the city's growth areas, document how it's changing and used by residents; and work with corporations to create a softer landing for newly relocated international professionals.

We are at an early stage in developing this project and would love to work in particular with public authorities in urban development and economic growth, major employers with international employees and curious Stockholmers who wish to inspire fellow residents or be inspired!

Be an early tester of our concept!
Share some of your favourite photos of how you work and play in Stockholm!

Stockholm Green Drinks

First Tuesday of every month 6pm - 9pm
Downtown Camper Campfire Grill & Bar
Brunkebergstorg 9 111 51 Stockholm

Green Drinks is an informal social where everyone who is interested in green issues can grab a drink and mingle with like-minded people. You can talk about anything that you think has great environmental credentials such as your organisation or project or even a great product or service that you know about with fellow Green Drinkers - in either English or Swedish. You can even share this with everyone during the 6:30pm - 7pm presentation slot*!

Come by yourself, but even better take a friend or a colleague or two - anyone who you think would also enjoy a Green Drink with us!

Join us!

Never miss a Green Drinks or what's happening at the next Green Drinks - sign up to our mailing list or join our Facebook group.

*Email me with a short description by the Tuesday before the Green Drinks if you have something you'd like to share with fellow Green Drinkers. 

Stockholm is the 596th city to join the Green Drinks global network, with the first drinks on Tuesday 6 November 2018. 


If you are working on an interesting project which involves making the city better for all who live, work, travel and play there, we would love to hear from you!
