The regional council of Häme develops the region and supervises regional interest both in Finland and globally. The council also maintains the summer university of Häme. The regional council of Häme is a service organization that participates in democratic decision-making. It gathers and processes different regional development perspectives, and evaluates their implementation feasibility. The council works in close co-operation with municipalities, state officials and businesses as well other development partners. The members of the council are municipalities around the Forssa, Hämeenlinna and Riihimäki area.
The Forssa region (Forssa, Humppila, Jokioinen, Tammela, Ypäjä) makes sensible environmental decisions and works towards environmentally-friendly and sustainable development. The region is recognized for its versatile competence as well as its research and educational organizations. People in the region live comfortably in the middle of the breathtakingly beautiful Häme close to good transport connections. The region has a variety of housing forms – all from detached houses to horse farms. Forssa boasts high-quality municipal and private services. Everything is easily reachable – forget about traffic jams and stress!
In the Hämeenlinna region (Hattula, Hämeenlinna, Janakkala), the positive aspects of city life are combined with peace and quiet. The region has worked especially for improving housing, education and entrepreneurial and cultural competence. The municipalities provide access to a range of work and education opportunities, but at the same time you are only an hour away from the largest cities in Southern Finland. This provides good commuting possibilities. In addition, the birthplace of our national composer Sibelius is a wonderful tourist attraction and a great place for tasty, locally produced food.
The Riihimäki region (Hausjärvi, Loppi, Riihimäki) is growing and attracting more and more inhabitants and companies from the capital region. The region offers a range of different housing options and beautiful nature in a logistically excellent location – just a half hour away from the capital region. Municipal and commercial services, schools and nurseries are never far away, and the prices of sites are considerably lower than in the capital region. Enjoy a high quality of living, but work wherever suits you best – smooth and simple!
