The European Green Capital

Lahti became the smallest and northernmost European Green Capital in 2021 thanks to decades of bold environmental efforts. 

Lahti is now looking to the future, set on continuing on its path of environ­mentally friendly activity. Its goal is to become a carbon-neutral city by 2025. 

Finland’s youngest university city

At the beginning of 2019, Lahti made history by becoming the first new university city in Finland in several decades. For Lahti, this means new expertise, new investments and a new future. LUT University and the University of Helsinki produce new experts for companies’ needs.
