In late 2019, Pentala Archipelago Museum was nominated for the prestigious European Museum of the Year Award (EMYA) 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the publication of the results was postponed until 2021, which means that the winners of both 2020 and 2021 will be revealed at the same time this May.

The placing of Pentala Archipelago Museum will be announced on 6 May 2021 at the online event held by the European Museum Forum

Pentala Archipelago Museum is in high-quality company as the contestants for the 2020 award include museums such as Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. In addition to Pentala, the competition also involves other museums related to sea and fishing, such as Norges Fiskerimuseum in Norway and Sesimbra Maritime Museum in Portugal.

Pentala Archipelago Museum is located in the nationally significant fishing and villa environment on Pentala island. Pentala is the jewel of maritime Espoo: it combines history, nature and culture. Pentala Archipelago Museum opened in 2018.

De nya hållbarhetsberäkningarna för Esbo är fortfarande dystra och verkligheten är ännu dystrare – det finns inga förutsättningar för att godkänna lagarna om en vårdreform14.5.2021 12:35:48 EEST | Tiedote

”Vårdreformen framskrider i en coronadimma med skygglappar för ögonen”, säger Esbos stadsdirektör Jukka Mäkelä. ”Beredarna bryr sig inte om konsekvenserna för de växande städerna. Finansministeriets nya hållbarhetsberäkning är fortfarande oroväckande, även om den direkta nedskärningen i Esbo har minskat något. I verkligheten är situationen ännu dystrare: hållbarhetsberäkningen beaktar inte att ökningen av skattefinansieringen avtar och inte heller stadens kostnader för ändringen.”

Uudet painelaskelmat Espoolle edelleen synkkiä ja todellisuus vielä synkempi – sote-lakien hyväksymiselle ei ole edellytyksiä14.5.2021 12:34:34 EEST | Tiedote

”Sote-uudistuksen läpivientiä jatketaan koronasumussa ja laput silmillä”, sanoo Espoon kaupunginjohtaja Jukka Mäkelä. ”Vaikutuksista kasvaviin kaupunkeihin ei piitata. Valtionvarainministeriön uusi painelaskelma näyttää edelleen pahalta, vaikka Espoon suora leikkaus onkin vähän pienentynyt. Todellisuudessa tilanne on vielä synkempi: painelaskelma ei huomioi verorahoituksen kasvun hidastumista eikä kaupungille koituvia muutoskustannuksia.”

Espoo-päivää vietetään perinteiseen tapaan elokuun viimeisenä lauantaina 28.8.202111.5.2021 09:59:28 EEST | Tiedote

Espoo-päivää juhlitaan yhdessä koko kaupungin kanssa elokuun viimeisenä lauantaina 28.8.2021. Juhlintaan ja kaupunkijuhlan viettoon kutsutaan mukaan kaikki kaupunkilaiset ja kaupungin ystävät. Tänä vuonna poikkeusajan vuoksi erityisen odotettu Espoo-päivä muodostuu kaupunginosa- ja puutarhajuhlista sekä keskustelutilaisuuksista. Virtuaalisesti saavutettavat sisällöt verkossa tukevat ohjelmistoa ja ne kootaan Espoon digitaaliseen kulttuuritaloon Urban Espooseen.
