Uutta Helsinkiä Östersundom
Östersundom is a rather unusual development area, since it is being realised as a joint effort between three municipalities: Helsinki, Vantaa and Sipoo. In the coming years, the aim is to build a new “affiliate city” for Helsinki with 80,000-100,000 inhabitants and 30,000 jobs, largely focusing on cleantech enterprises. Under new Östersundom Smart & Clean Vision, the call is out for forward-thinking companies from the fields of circular economy and sustainable solutions.
Östersundom is also a development project with no small national significance, since it is expected to make a major contribution to achieving the goal of the Finnish government programme – to make Finland a true pioneer in bio/circular economies. This goal supports also the objective of making the Helsinki Metropolitan Area “a leading cleantech metropolis”.
