Regional vision and strategies for North Karelia

 

"Innovative and prosperous, close to nature, attractive and international region" is North Karelia's vision come 2030.

 

The North Karelian Climate and Energy Programme 2020 does not include only energy but land use planning and construction, transportation, forestry, agriculture and waste management.

 

Basis for the North Karelia Climate and Energy Programme 2020 was formed by the strong political commitment amongst municipalities, a wide range of companies related to renewable energy sector (at least 120 companies in 2008) and good statistics. 

 

North Karelia Climate and Energy Programme 2020 seeks solutions which help individuals and organisations to take climate change into account already at the planning stage. Biosphere Reserve is a partner in that work.
