The Ministry of the Environment published its new website on 23 September. Now the renewed visual identity of the Ministry of the Environment is also shown on its website.

The structure and content of the website have also been revised. For Ymparisto.fi this mean that some of the links may not work at the moment.

Please send feedback and proposals to make the new website of the Ministry of the Environment even better.
