Tiny houses in Finland – why? How?

How can you and I enhance sustainable development? In my workshops, I always ask the participants, in one way or another, how they are already enhancing sustainable development and what they could do to get a discussion started about solutions and actions. Therefore, I think a lot about what I can do myself.

One solution that would positively affect all sustainability aspects would be to live in smaller houses.
