Ten volunteers needed!

The City of Helsinki is looking for international residents of the city to participate in an online discussion that will explore resident perceptions of Helsinki. The only requirements are that you have lived in Helsinki as a registered resident for at least one year and would like to share your views.

The research is conducted by the customer agency Frankly and commissioned by the City of Helsinki.

You will be asked several questions on a closed online platform to determine your views on Helsinki. After you have entered your answers, you can see and comment on other participants’ thoughts. The anonymous online discussion will be open between 15-17 September 2021 (Wed-Fri) and you will be free to participate at any time during this period. It will require about 2-3 hours of your time.

You will be expected to participate actively in the discussion and answer the questions thoughtfully and at length. All participants will be rewarded with a 30-euro Bookingpoint gift card towards an adventure in the Helsinki Region.

Join the group by sending a note to Riikka Lahdensuo/City of Helsinki at: riikka.lahdensuo@hel.fi.

The first 10 people who indicate an interest will be selected, so sign up today.

Thank you everyone for your enthusiastic interest! Ten volunteers have already been found, so you can disregard this post.

I'd gladly be part of this and no reward needs to be given. I'm just happy to share experiences from the perspective of a Los Angeles gal who's been living/working in Helsinki for 21 years. :-)
