The City of Oslo

Oslo is the capital of Norway and the largest city in the country. Oslo is both a county and a municipality. In Oslo you can find several museums (including the Munch museum), diverse architecture (like the Oslo Opera House and the Royal Palace), numerous islands, a large number of lakes and two small rivers. More than half of Oslo consists of forests and parks, and the fjord stretches all the way into the city centre. Oslo is the European Green Capital for 2019.

The City of Oslo is currently working with the following topics:

  • Health
  • Culture
  • Welfare and integration
  • The Green Transition
  • European Green Cities 
  • Green transport
  • Air quality
  • Fossil free construction sites
  • Carbon Capture and Storage
  • Age-friendly city
  • Circular economy
