Vantaa will design its PCED in the Aviapolis area to create the greenest airport city in Europe.

Vantaa is committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2030. To accelerate towards this goal, the city has identified Aviapolis as the most suitable area for a PCED.
Aviapolis is a brownfield area turning into a unique airport city with housing, employment opportunities, services, leisure activities, and cultural amenities. One of the goals for this area is to become the greenest airport city in Europe. This requires ambition in planning and developing the area, not only in terms of energy solutions but also, pedestrian routes, multimodal accessibility, and green infrastructure.
The City of Vantaa has its own framework for participation called Participatory Vantaa, which offers a variety of opportunities to include citizens on an online platform. In the NEUTRALPATH framework, Vantaa will also invite stakeholders to take part in the project through various events, surveys, and collaborations.


The Climate-Neutral Labs act as innovation hubs with dual purposes: engaging local stakeholders and citizens in co-designing PCEDs and working together to accelerate the process toward climate neutrality.

The objectives of Vantaa CN-Lab are:
– Co-developing a feasible PCED plan in Aviapolis area
– Developing the planning process and solutions to establish low-carbon districts that support climate friendly every-day life.
– Strengthening the pathway towards carbon neutral Vantaa 2030 via action and investment planning
– Increasing commitment, mutual understanding, and the level of competence within the city administration and among stakeholders.

Vantaa CN-Lab has identified ten groups of local stakeholders to be included in the participatory process of the NEUTRALPATH project.
