Housing and environment

Espoo is home to more than 260 000 people. As the second largest city in Finland, Espoo is an enjoyable, lively and rapidly growing and developing place of residence. The network-like urban structure of Espoo relies heavily on the routes and nodes of road and rail traffic. In the upcoming years, a record number of investments will be made in developing the city. 

The City of Espoo is a significant builder. It develops and builds e.g. traffic lanes, park and other public areas as well as premises for the city’s own service production. Public building enables the creation and maintenance of the basic necessities of urban life. Public building projects are often the result of cooperation between multiple parties.

During migration, several bird species that nest in the Barents region rest and feed in the Laajalahti wetlands in Espoo ­ ̶ waders, hawks and geese. The photography exhibition will take you to the threatened habitats of these species and illustrates the beauty of the North’s valuable nature.
Sirpa Hertell, chair of the Espoo Sustainable Development programme will attend the UN High-level Political Forum on sustainable development in the middle of July. Hertell will travel to New York as part of the Finnish delegation led by Minister of Agriculture and the Environment Kimmo Tiilikainen.
