In Helsinki-Uusimaa we have ambitious climate goals and many solutions, tools and cooperation models to offer. What do the young think about solutions and courses of action? Every speaker will be challenged by two young climate activists: Zahra Karimy and Anton Keskinen. We wish to include young people in the climate discussions and hear their opinions.

We will share our experiences of how collaboration can meet climate challenges. The Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council will present its model of cooperation, where the public and private sector, as well as R&D&I actors along with the inhabitants contribute to the climate change mitigation by acknowledging the limits of the environment. The cities of Helsinki, Vantaa, Espoo and Porvoo will present their most impressive cooperative climate actions. The Helsinki Region Environmental Services Authority HSY, Kausal Ltd and the Climate Leadership Coalition (CLC) will bring you new tools for climate work.
