"Touching experiences for everyone"
I am a 25-year-old master’s student in Economics and Business Administration.
I grew up in a bilingual environment in Turku. My education language is Swedish and my hobbies are largely in Finnish. I have an excellent empirical knowledge of the growing environment of children and young people in the Turku region within both language groups.
I'm worried about the deteriorating physical and mental well-being in our population. It would be good to guide children and young people to a healthy life from an early age. Movement through joy as a child carries far throughout the life. In the future, Turku must guarantee even better recreational opportunities for everyone, regardless of age and family background.
My Turku offers experiences on an emotional level as well. In the future, I want to see more investments in the Turku region's cultural services. In addition, it should always be profitable to work. I want Turku to be a forerunner in business friendliness and equal opportunities to success for everyone.
I believe that the basis for well-being of the residents is a meaningful everyday life. The city must create conditions for the inhabitants to find a balance between working life and leisure. Versatile sports and cultural services form an excellent basis for this.
Well-run economy and business
A well-managed economy creates the conditions for a functioning everyday life. Encouraging entrepreneurship should be high on the priority list for decision-makers in Turku. In addition, the city must create good conditions for investments so that the city's employment rate can start to rise again after the coronavirus crisis.
Physical fitness has a direct link to coping with everyday life and, through it, to the ever-declining mental well-being of our population. At the same time, the ability to cope with the challenges of working life is impaired, and at a later stage, the ability to care for our aging loved ones. Investments in extensive recreational opportunities pay for themselves many times over in the long run.
