Sustainable Urbanisation Programme

Sustainable Urbanisation
© Tuula Roos, vastavalo.fi

The Sustainable Urbanisation Programme generates information on urban development for use by policy-makers, citizens and other stakeholder groups, and supports their active participation in the process.

The programme promotes urban research activities at SYKE and supports the generation, analysis and distribution of urban information. It also combines research and development projects under this theme. In addition to carrying out research, the programme members are actively involved in monitoring the international phenomenon of urbanisation and participate in research and expert networks.
