Sustainable Development Goals
Media City Odense contributes to the global goals with a strong partnership across organisations, educational environments and business. We strengthen a strong community that, in a cross-field of research, educational institutions and job opportunities, ensures young people the opportunity for education and jobs in an exciting media and tech environment. Social responsibility is an integral part of the development in Denmark's new media tech cluster. With inclusion and innovation in a diversity of gender, age and educational background, MCO focuses on creating opportunities for development and growth through the cluster.
Media City Odense and the founders behind it want to create a new physical media city in Odense, where sustainable construction and operation with resource-responsible solutions are environmentally, socially and economically included in the project.
The media city is in the preliminary planning phase, but it has already been visualized by architects with sustainable solutions to ensure that it becomes a new green district rooted in Odense's identity. The media city is being built next to TV 2 Danmark on a large plot of land owned by DSB Ejendomme. The media city will be Media City Odense's yearly must attend event. for Odense and ensure the cluster a national leading position in the media industry and the surrounding ecosystem.
