Botildenborg – Sustainable Innovation Center
The goal of Botildenborg is to create the leading arena in Europe for sustainable innovations. We are located in Rosengård, Malmö, Sweden, an area known for its 150 nationalities. It’s a unique place for human interaction and integration. Our work is focused on the following areas: Job creation, Dissemination of knowledge about a diverse society and sustainability, and Giving people hope.
Botildenborg hosts a diverse range of activities and projects:
