Suburban days in Vaasa’s Ristinummi and Olympiakortteli

Published: 14.4.2022

The Suburban Inno research project run by the University of Vaasa will organise a residents’ day on 20th of April at Ristinummi in front of the Village Centre Kultanummi (15-18 hours), and on 21st of April at Olympiakortteli central square (15-18 hours).

Suburban Inno is a two-year research project that studies sustainability of neighbourhoods in cooperation with different stakeholders and operators working in the areas. Social sustainability means the comprehensive well-being of residents, enabling a good everyday life and meaningful living in a housing area.

Researchers have collected extensive research data from residents and Vaasa officials. Based on research data, useful information will be produced to prevent segregation and to promote the development of neighbourhoods. Right now, eight researchers are working on the project.

In the event, researchers will discuss with the residents and share information about ongoing neighbourhood research and its results. On both days, coffee and buns are served for the first 100 city dwellers. The Suburban Inno project is a part of the national Suburban Programme managed by the Ministry of the Environment.
