Co-creating smart & green neighborhoods, blocks and spaces is an online-event organised by The Helsinki Innovations Districts -programme. Come and join the stream to hear fresh insights from the projects. 

The Helsinki Innovation District -programme has expanded smart city development to the suburbs and older districts under development. The talks include perspectives on retrofitting the smart city and getting inspired on experiences from the sharing cities in Sweden. We will also talk about experimentation with citizen engagement in planning of green spaces and get fresh insights on how the behaviour changes can be measured within urban spaces.
