Future Smart City

Welcome to the international Vaasa EnergyWeek!

Opening ceremony for EnergyWeek 2019 gives us an opportunity to  together set the goals and framework for this year’s event. When we talk about a branch this significant, it is important to keep our vision clear, set the bar high and together find the solutions to use when facing the most important challenges of our time, fighting the climate change, finding sustainable solutions and creating smart cities and regions.

Ambassadors from Denmark, Norway and Sweden are giving us a short insight about possibilities and challenges they have in their country regarding this theme.  These interesting speeches is followed by a panel discussion.
