We Love Cities is a global campaign led by the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) designed to encourage citizen engagement as cities work towards a more sustainable future. Turku was the only Finnish city selected to participate, based on its climate work and its sustainability strategy.
Turku has consistently demonstrated a commitment to sustainable initiatives and addressing the climate emergency. The city recently outlined ambitious plans to become carbon neutral by 2029, based on an increase in trees and green spaces. This strategy has already resulted in Turku being recognised as the best mid-sized climate city in Europe earlier this year. Turku is also one of the first cities to conduct a voluntary review of its performance in relation to the UN’s sustainable development goals.
