Spotlight on The City of Helsinki

Cities are key to ensure the world builds back better after the Covid 19 shock. Aiming at better understanding how cities around the world are implementing innovative measures to ensure a sustainable and just future, UK’s Connected Places Catapult has partnered with Singapore’s Centre for Liveable Cities to deliver a series of dialogues with city leaders between now and COP26 in Glasgow in November. This series will promote senior level debates, in a fireside format, on key topics such as Post-Pandemic Green Recovery, Smart Resilience and the city’s contribution to achieve the global climate commitments.
