Have you heard about the swedish city Kiruna which is about to move two miles from where it is right now? (Although some parts will be kept). Do you think this will be more common in the future? (Depending on the environment)
Kirunas situation is unique because of its small population and reason for moving, as described in The Guardian:
Kiruna’s current location hinges on the reason for its very existence, as well as its potential demise: this particular patch of Lapland – usually bright-white snow and reindeer – is, in fact, home to one of the largest iron ore deposits in the world. After the Luossavaara-Kiirunavaara Aktiebolag (LKAB) mining company was established in 1890 and a railway to the area built, the city was founded in 1900. Kiruna grew quickly, and so did the mine.
But now the extent of the mining is threatening the city itself. The expansion of LKAB’s mining activity is leading to ground subsidence that is causing buildings to crack and collapse – and it will only get worse.
