The resident evening for the residents of Vuosaari hosted by Mayor Juhana Vartiainen was held on Thursday, February 16 at the premises of Vuosaari high school. At the event, residents, city management and partners gathered to discuss topical issues together. Most of the themes raised in the discussion  concerned environment, services and traffic.

During the evening, the city's representatives got to hear the residents' thoughts about their own residential area, and the residents could discuss and ask about current issues directly with the Mayor of Helsinki, Juhana Vartiainen, and the Heads of Divisions. In addition, residents could request topics to be discussed in advance via the Kerro kantasi survey, a service open to everyone.

Questions could also be sent during the event through the message wall via the form found on the website of Helsinki Channel. You could ask questions even if you were participating remotely.

- The Mayor's resident evening offers the city's residents the opportunity to discuss the issues of their own residential area with the city's representatives and bring forward considerations they feel are important. You can ask your own questions at the event on the spot or remotely via Helsinki Channel's broadcast page. I warmly welcome all residents of Vuosaari to the event, invited Titta Reunanen, Team Leader in Interaction.

At the beginning of the event, the pop-up market offered an opportunity to meet representatives of the city's divisions and the staff of the Participation and Citizen Information Unit, as well as the actors of local associations starting at 6 p.m. The goal was that the residents could get information and have a low-threshold conversation with the city's experts, who are responsible for the preparation and implementation of matters.

There was a childcare service for children over 3 years old in cooperation with Pienperheyhdistys ry and Jobd'd young people.

A bilingual invitation was sent to the homes of the residents of the area about two weeks before the event.

A recording of the event has now been published on Helsinki Channel.

Time of the event: Thursday, 16 February from 7 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. (6 p.m. the pop up market)
