Thematic maps

The Master Plan Unit of the Helsinki City Planning Department has produced seven thematic maps depicting how Helsinki could look in 2050. The vision approaches Helsinki’s future through seven themes: (1) Housing; (2) Business and centres; (3) Traffic and transport; (4) Recreation areas and urban nature; (5) Urbanism and urban culture; (6) A city by the sea; and (7) International Helsinki. Each of the seven themes is also examined cross-sectionally from the perspectives of accessibility, urban productivity and economy, eco-efficiency, climate change and energy as well as the environment and good city life.
