This essay discusses the use of ecosystem services in the vity renewal project Norra Djurgårdsstaden in central Stockholm. The chosen method has been a document analysis where neoliberal planning tendencies was identified from five factors. This was then critically analyzed with the theoretical framework of Harveys theory about urban entrepreneurialism, and political ecology. Holgersens Green fix, Racos theory about cultural distinction in communities, and Constanzas et.al theory about a putting a monetary value on the natures ecosystems.
The three questions that framed the essay was:
What role can ecosystem services come to be play in a neoliberal city?
How can the citizens of Stockholm be affected by the project in Norra Djurgårdsstaden and it’s work with ecosystem services?
How is the climate work in Norra Djurgårdsstaden used within a neoliberal context?
The analysis shows how the use of ecosystem services and the environmental aspects of the are mostly is used as city branding to attract innovative humans and capital. It also shows what role ecosystem services can play in a neoliberal city with strong public-private partnerships, and how it would come to better use in areas with lower socioeconomical status, and that it´s therefor not created for the citizens, but rather for the visitors and the companies to strengthen Stockholm on the interurban market.
