EU Green City award winning Stockholm

Here's a news article on how environmentally friendly Stockholm is. I'm always surprised how the city manages to combine urban amenity with nature seamlessly. But there is a downside to it. Rent regulation certainly discourages the building of new apartments which potentially harms environment. Nature-loving people mean less demand for cutting-edge urban amenity.

There is always a trade-off. The key is what you value the most.
