Sustainable Tampere 2030

Tampere aims to be carbon neutral by 2030. This means that Tampere will reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 80 per cent compared to 1990 levels and that the remaining 20 per cent will be compensated by increasing carbon sinks, such as forests and green areas.

The programme is particularly aimed at reducing emissions from urban planning, housing, mobility, energy and consumption. In addition to the city group, key collaborators include Tampere-based businesses, associations and residents. The programme specifies measures as jointly agreed between the involved parties and launches projects to implement them.

The Sustainable Tampere 2030 programme is a roadmap for the "Sustainable Tampere 2030 – towards a carbon-neutral city" policy.

Carbon Neutral Tampere 2030 Roadmap

The city's climate actions have been compiled into the Carbon Neutral Tampere 2030 Roadmap. The roadmap includes 236 actions under six themes: urban planning, mobility, construction, energy, consumption and nature.

Sustainable Tampere 2030 programme created the roadmap together with the city’s service areas, various departments, public utilities and city’s companies. The City Board approved the roadmap on August 31, 2020.

Tampere will be carbon neutral by 2030. This means that greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced by 80% compared to 1990 and the remaining 20% will be compensated. According to the roadmap impact assessment, the city’s measures will achieve a 72% reduction in emissions by 2030. However, it has not yet been possible to assess the impact of all measures. The roadmap will be updated as necessary to reach the goal.

My2050 mobile game about climate change

A Tampere version of the My2050 mobile game on climate change has been released. My2050 provides both fun entertainment and information on climate change.

My2050 is a free adventure game where players will take an hour to explore the beaches of Tammerkoski river and Näsinpuisto Park in the City Center and discover the story of 20th-century YouTuber Niha Bee. At the same time, they collect points by solving tasks.

The My2050 is suitable for groups of friends or work, for families and travelers, or for teaching purposes from the age of 12 to the adult. You can play in Finnish or English using the mobile application, regardless of the time of day.

The game version was developed as part of the Smart Tampere development program and the STARDUST project. Previously, customized versions of My2050 have been released for Helsinki and Espoo. The game was made by Visio GameFactory.
