Services


Valonia offers information, tools and networking possibilities for the municipalities, companies as well as third sector organizations that are interested in environmental responsibility. We are a project organisation and mostly our services are free of charge for the municipalities, as a part of our project activity.

Valonia organizes events, offers practical tools for environmental management, creates networking possibilities and shares information. Our work reaches from strategic level to hand-on work.

Our target groups are e.g. companies, business counsellors, municipality officials and organizations that are working in Southwest Finland. Naturally our networking reaches also further, hence many of our projects are national or international. We endorse local entrepreneurship, know-how and cooperation and promote sustainable innovations and practices.

Our free basic services for municipalities include counselling, events and education, project planning and e.g. educational materials. As outsourced services we offer e.g. expert lectures, communication services and counselling, surveys, sampling and reports.

We’re always open for new project and co-working ideas, feel free to contact!

We want to support municipalities in the process of creating a sustainable future and function as an additional resource when concretising efforts.

  • Climate- environment- and sustainable development programmes
  • Project ideation and planning
  • Bringing together stakeholder groups – our networks are one of a kind
  • Specialist role in project steering groups
  • Energy efficiency strategies
  • Sustainable and innovative procurement guidance

Consumer advice has been part of Valonia’s core work during twenty years’ time. As advice to individual consumers is increasingly being provided nationwide, it is our task to guide people to knowledge.

 

We organise several theme nights with different topics each year, for example for residents’ associations. Here are some more examples of our counselling work:

 

  • Coordination of regional energy counselling, for example joint tender procedures for procurement of solar energy
  • Asiaa energiasta – Motiva’s energy counselling on Facebook
  • Waste water management counselling in sparsely populated areas
  • Theme nights and events for example related to solar energy and water protection

Our specialists can be asked to give individual lectures or to plan study modules on different topics. As an example we give environmental education lessons in the municipalities in Southwest Finland as part of our basic services. The same service is offered to other interested parties as commission work.

  • Lectures regarding sustainable consumption, circular economy, climate work and other themes
  • Lectures in schools
  • Water school: exploring nearby water bodies together
  • Sustainable consumption and own carbon footprint
  • Workshops, seminars and schoolings for teachers and educators
  • Study materials
  • Exhibition materials and assignment packages

You can also turn to our specialists regarding different investigative processes. We are not a consultant firm per se, and we always consider the commission work we take on depending on the situation. However, we can always help you find the right actor!

Examples of previous commission work:

  • Wastewater sampling from the wastewater system
  • Studies in support of mobility planning and management (e.g. municipalities and companies)
  • Nature surveys (e.g. springs, urban forests, small water bodies)
