Sweden Goes YIMBY

In Stockholm, Sweden, a new group calling themselves YIMBY 'Yes in My Backyard' is promoting a vision of a dense, dynamic city.

From the Christian Science Monitor:

"When plans for a new high-rise development in downtown Stockholm were unveiled last month, the critics predictably lined up to slam them. But there were also those who enthusiastically embraced the project, indicating a sea change in how Stockholm residents view their city."
