More than 40 events and measures are planned for 2021. There are many individual events with en environmental theme. Some are self-organized and some are implemented as an event partnership.
The main events include the opening of the Green Leaf year, the Greenreality Carnival, the Sustainable Tourism Seminar, the Green Electrification Congress and the Wastewater Congress. New nature sites are planned to be implemented and a local event will also be organized for the EU Green week. The calendar of events will be updated as the dates are confirmed.
Linked to the Green Leaf year is the event partnership model already in use in the city (in Finnish). The model provides event producers with expert assistance, communicative visibility as well as financial support. The partnership is applied for on a form, after which the necessary further negotiations take place.
