  • Espoo was the first city which joined the Society's Commitment to Sustainable Development in Finland. Different units, companies and networks of the city have taken part in the programme through their own practical activities. The Finnish National Commission on Sustainable Development rewarded Espoo's commitment as the most impactful of the year.
  • Many success stories, bold experiments and a few mistakes. That is what Cultural Unit's year 2015 was made of according to the freshly published annual report.
