A GREEN CITY IS WITHIN REACH

In a Green Helsinki life is in easy reach. We want neighbourhood libraries, neighbourhood shops, day care centres and schools that are nearby, as well as easy access to culture and nature. Destinations are within walking or cycling distance, or accessible by local trains, buses, trams, or the Metro. We want neighbourhood democracy to allow everyone the opportunity to take part in joint decision making. We need to take care of each other.

The City of Helsinki’s highest decision making body is the City Council, elected in municipal elections every four years. The Greens is the second largest group with 21 members (out of 85 total) in the council and 4 (out of 15) in the City Board.
