Lahti has been on a journey to clean up over the last 45 years and find new ways to develop a more sustainable urban model, which culminated this year in Lahti becoming the European Green Capital.
Today, as the city’s Mayor Pekka Timonen says in the video below, Lahti has become a leader in the circular economy, and “an inspiring example of a city that transforms itself from an industrial background and history into a modern, advanced, environmental city.”
This model of sustainable transformation is vital for all cities, according to the Mayor, and the Green City Accord is there to set a path to help all cities move forward.
