State of the environment in Finland
The living nature, water, air, soil, and cities. All of these are part of the environment, and they all show the handprint of humans. This handprint is often so heavy that the well-being of nature is threatened, but in many cases, things are improving. What about us humans in the midst of all this? What’s happening to us Finns?
