The vision of Helsinki-Uusimaa Region 2040

In 2040, Helsinki-Uusimaa Region will be on top of the Baltic Sea Region when it comes to creating and taking advantage of socio-economic growth, enabling a well-funtioning everyday life for its inhabitants and arranging activities in an ecologically and economically sustainable way.

The strategic priorities for 2014–2017:

  • Opportunities for Growth – How can we enable smart growth and a rapid and flexible development of the industry?
  • Well-functioning Everyday Life – What are the basic preconditions of a well-functioning everyday life; how do we live and how is the transportation system organized in the future?
  • Sustainable Ecology – How do we secure a sustainable use of natural resources and how do we maintain a natural diversity?

The municipalitices of Helsinki-Uusimaa, the Government Administration as well as the entrepreneurial and the educational sector will take account of the Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Programme in their own programmes, financial decisions and projects.

The Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Programme has been drawn up as a cooperation between The Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council and The Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment for Uusimaa (ELY).

Regional Implementation Plan

The Regional Implementation Plan is more detailed than the Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Programme and it is drawn up annually. The Regional Implementation Plan outlines the actors for individual projects and preliminary project budgets stated in the Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Programme.

The Implementation Plan for the Helsinki-Uusimaa Region is developed through an extensive consultation process involving the key stakeholders in the region and partners responsible for the individual projects.
