MDI sparred Kokkola’s urban environmental industry in relation to their preparation of a development plan. MDI familiarised itself with the background material (workshop materials, studies, surveys, strategies, etc.) on the urban development sector development plan that is known and relevant to the client. A background information package of material collected by MDI in other contexts was then put together. MDI prepared a current state analysis based on the statistical, strategic and other documentary material used in the workshop. The workshop was held on the 15th of March, in Kokkola.
