Answer the survey: How functional a place of residence is Helsinki?

Helsinki's vision is to be the most functional city in the world. By means of a short survey, the City of Helsinki wants to hear experiences from its residents on how it feels to live and reside in Helsinki. How is the everyday life here?

The residents’ practical experiences of life are important to the City. Direct feedback from the residents is needed in order for Helsinki to be able to create a better city and increasingly fluent services.

“Helsinki’s vision is to be the most functional city in the world and to offer the best possible conditions for urban life for its residents and visitors. Helsinki wants to improve things every day, to make the lives of people in Helsinki more pleasant and uncomplicated. Tell us where we have been successful and where we may not have been so successful”, encourages Helsinki Mayor Jan Vapaavuori.

So do you think that Helsinki is international, close to nature or fun? Urban, neat and creative, or safe, equal, service-minded and dynamic? How likely is it that you would recommend Helsinki as a place of residence for your friends living elsewhere?

Answer the survey here and tell us your opinion!
The survey is open until 15 November.

The answers to the survey will be utilised in the follow-up of the realisation of the Helsinki City Strategy and in the development of the City.

The survey is open to all Helsinki residents aged 18 or over. In addition to the open web survey, answers will be collected through phone interviews.

The survey is now conducted for the first time and in the future, the intention is to complete it twice a year.

The results of the Helsinki barometer will be published in the beginning of 2020 on the City’s website and the City of Helsinki’s Kvartti magazine
