Helsinki’s vision is to be the world’s most functional city. In pursuing this vision, it seeks to create the best conditions possible for urban life for its residents and for visitors. Functionality is based on equality, non-discrimination, strong social cohesion and open, inclusive ways of operating. Helsinki also takes its own responsibility for the prevention of climate change seriously and ambitiously. Helsinki sets the goal of reducing emissions by 60 per cent by 2030, and brings forward its target of carbon neutrality to 2035 instead of 2050, as earlier. There is a potential to make an impact by creating new innovations for urban food systems including solutions for production, consumption, retail, waste management and energy. Tukkutori/Teurastamo district is a test bed for new food related soltions - we are waiting for your ideas!
