Rita Justesen


The world changes and cities change too. As Director of Planning and Sustainability at the City of Copenhagen, Rita Justesen sees the necessity of being part of that huge transformation, which is why she focuses on the development of new urban districts that are sustainable both, in the short and long run. According to Rita, some of the most pressing challenges include the growing number of people looking for a place to live, the provision of a high class transport system, and of course the creation of dense, diverse, but most importantly liveable neighbourhoods.

The transformation of Copenhagen has been going on for more than 25 years and as Rita puts it, it is still a learning process – one that she is more than excited to be a part of.
