– We especially encourage companies to sign up for the event on 29 May: Investing in Circularity and Sustainability, Ms Pipsa Salolammi says. She is working as the Adviser for the Valley at the Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council.
On 1 June, we have an entertaining evening programme that is open to everyone – a walking tour in the Kalasatama-Teurastamo area (in Helsinki) to get familiar with practical, everyday life solutions to circular economy!
