Finland’s seven largest urban areas will grow by one million inhabitants by 2050. Already during the next 15 years the areas will require housing and infrastructure investments worth at least €100 billion. The Roadmap for Finnish Urban Policy includes ten recommendations for the upcoming governmental term 2015-2019, including renewing the existing planning system and concentrating policy issues dealing with the built environment under a single ministry. The roadmap was ordered by SAK, a major labour market organisation, the Confederation of Finnish Construction Industries and five other organisations. Finland’s best experts in the field of urban development where involved in drafting the roadmap.
