Smart Green Small Cities Again Sparred by MDI

MDI facilitated a meeting between smart green small cities in Finland, a pilot project launched by the Ministry of Employment and the Economy. The main theme of the day was financing and planning of the next year.

Most likely smart green cities will do two 48 h road shows in November in the regions of Southern Finland and Ostrobothnia.
