EVENTS IN FINNISH 


LET'S DEVELOP THE CITY
31 May 2017 – Present

 
Let’s Develop the City is an open forum for discussions between citizens and governance, to bring together agents in urbanization with a wide variety of attendees. The project was launched in spring 2017 with the Törnävä area in Seinäjoki, Finland, as a case study. The children of Törnävä inhabitants attended a workshop where they were allowed to take part in planning the development of the area, and have their voices heard by city officials.
 
More events in the series to be announced soon.
