Together with its partners on Espoo Day, Saturday 29 August 2020, the City of Espoo organises an event discussing the safety of everyday life and how everyone can contribute to it. Unfortunately because of the coronavirus risk, the public may not attend the event, but you can follow the discussion online and participate using the broadcast chat. You may also submit questions to the experts in advance.

The “Safe Espoo: You make your everyday life safe” event will be broadcast live from the Kalajärvi Service Centre on 29 August 11am–12:30pm. You can follow the broadcast and participate in the chat at mediaserver.fi/live/espoo. The event will also be video-recorded, to be published later on the City of Espoo’s YouTube channel.

You can also send questions and thoughts to the organisers in advance about what security issues you would like the event to discuss by completing the survey.

Solving safety issues touching everyone together with local residents

At the event hosted by Unna Lehtipuu, everyday safety will be discussed by

  • Chief Security Officer Petri Häkkinen, City of Espoo
  • Planning Officer Outi Salo, Länsi-Uusimaa Rescue Department
  • Professor of Practice, Cyber Security Jarno Limnéll, Aalto University
  • Chief Inspector Hannu Väänänen, Western Uusimaa Police Department

“We in Espoo think that the city’s task is to strengthen the community spirit and, through it, to increase the safety of Espoo and of those living in the city. The public events organised under the Safe Espoo name are a way to wake up and invite people to join in solving safety issues that affect us all,” says Petri Häkkinen.

During the autumn, the City of Espoo and its partners aim to organise three “You make your everyday life safe” events. The events in Matinkylä and Espoon keskus will be organised, as far as possible, so that the public can also attend. Depending on the coronavirus situation, it may also be necessary to hold them online or cancel them completely – news about this will be published on the website of each event, for example:
