Smart Kalasatama’s work is showcased also by the overall theme of the stand: One more hour a day (25/7). It’s is the same vision as we have, the one we created together with local residents and other stakeholders for the area. Time is city residents’ most precious and valuable resource. It is spent daily on queuing up, grocery shopping and commuting. Smart services improve both quality of life and time management.

If you’re in Barcelona, come and meet the Finnish smart city experts in the Finnish Pavilion D425!
