Sponsor experiment in sustainable housing

The aim of the experiment was to increase the perceived sense of community and sustainable choices in everyday life in two of the Y-Foundation’s residential communities located in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area. The aim was to create a sponsor model for sustainable housing.



  • Strengthening the sustainable everyday choices and operating methods of residents (environmental benefits).
  • Sense of community, inclusion and the management of daily life will improve.
  • Improved trust and communication between the administration and residents.
  • Replicable in other rental housing companies and supported housing units.
