City of Helsinki
P.O. Box 20, Unioninkatu 28 A
With the population of over half a million, the City of Helsinki is the biggest city in Finland. Helsinki is rapidly becoming more international, and the diversity among its population is increasing faster than in the rest of the country. This change makes it necessary to continually evaluate our city as an open and shared place in which to lead a good life and whether the City’s services can reach everyone. Therefore, Helsinki works systematically towards enabling the integration of Helsinki’s new residents and supporting them in this process within all the services provided in both national languages Finnish and Swedish.
In Helsinki it is our goal to ensure that Helsinki remains internationally competitive in order to attract a new skilled workforce to the country. Simultaneously, the City wants to make sure that Helsinki is the world’s most effective place to learn and offers all its residents the best possible opportunities to access care, education and employment. Helsinki must be open, encourage social participation and be a city that everyone feels equally part of.
Helsinki is a city for everyone.
