Ask questions and discuss
The future of the city is discussed at resident meetings and online.
The Mayor’s resident evenings are held in different neighbourhoods of the city four times a year. The evenings are hosted by the Mayor, and they are joined by City experts representing diverse fields. The themes of the evenings are local conditions and the future of the neighbourhood.
City planning resident events are used to present and discuss current plans. Discussion continues online on the city planning forum – KSV Forum. City planning is also the theme at events held at the Laituri city planning meeting place in Kamppi.
Kerro Kartalla (tell it to us on the map) interactive pages are used to gather citizen opinions and observations posted on the map. Surveys are organized on current topics and plans. The ideas and observations are utilized in further planning.
The Ruuti participation system allows 13- to 20-year-old Helsinki residents to formulate ideas, participate in the general discussion, comment on and support the ideas of others, get help for their own activities and join new groups. Ruuti operates both online and at schools.
Information on new meetings and surveys is compiled on the Current projects page.
