Lahti European Green Capital 2021
Every year, the European Commission awards the title of European Green Capital to one European city that has a consistent record of achieving high environmental standards, is committed to ongoing and ambitious goals for further environmental improvement and sustainable development and can act as a role model to inspire other cities and promote best practices to all other European cities.
The City of Lahti is working on a comprehensive regional and international programme featuring both a range of events and various cooperation projects for its European Green Capital year 2021. Lahti’s Green Capital year contributes towards Finland's climate targets, promotes sustainable urban development and showcases the most advanced environmental solutions in Europe. Lahti has chosen carbon-neutral life, citizen engagement, circular economy as well as nature and water as the themes for the big year.
