The Welfare City

This Helsinki Summer School course takes a look at the welfare city as a sustainable model of urban development. A welfare city, such as Helsinki, promotes the wellbeing of its citizens, sustains a balance between the needs of both nature and the people, and responds to social and ecological awareness alike. Or does it? The course uses lectures, workshops and excursions in Helsinki to examine what makes the Finnish capital a welfare city.
