Think Sustainably is a service which resembles a city guide with sustainability as the main factor. It allows local residents and foreign visitors to make sustainable choices on a daily basis. It filters content from the MyHelsinki.fi website to suggest sustainable services, such as restaurants, shops, sights, events and accommodation.
The base of the service is in tailor-made criteria for the city of Helsinki that have been developed together with the independent think tank Demos Helsinki, along with local interest groups and sustainability experts. The criteria can be used as a set of tools to develop operations. They highlight ecological sustainability and specifically address climate change, yet also consider social sustainability.
