Housing and communities
In line with the Society’s Commitment to Sustainable Development, our aim is to promote housing solutions that suit the varying life situations. We need sustainable and safe communities where jobs, housing, diverse services, sustainable transport systems and green and water areas support economic, social, cultural and ecological wellbeing.
The need for transport must be reduced while creating community structures that encourage to healthy and sustainable mobility. Excessive differentiation and growing inequality of communities must be prevented by maintaining a balanced population structure. We must prepare for the changing climate and hydrological conditions.
