Solutions for 1,5°C World.
Fighting against climate crisis is like conducting an orchestra. And like playing a symphony, impactful climate solutions can only be done together. In solving the climate crisis, though, playing according to old notes is not enough – a new approach and cooperation is needed from all of us. Halting global warming below 1.5°C requires urgent and massive CO2 emission reductions, as well as lifestyle changes.
Smart & Clean was a world leading community building impactful climate solutions for systemic challenges. The foundation’s five-year operating period ended on 30th June 2021. New types of mobility, energy, housing and circular economy solutions mitigate climate change while providing new business opportunities for the companies involved. Helsinki metropolitan cities, businesses and the research community have been building multi stakeholder ecosystems to accelerate the transition.
The world’s wicked challenges are solved locally in cities, but their impact is global.
