"Let's keep Espoo as attractive as it has been so far! Investing on kids and the young is essential also in the future - our future is in their hands. Let's plan our environment as cosy and green as possible and let's take a good care of the economy of the city."

After living over two decades in several parts of Espoo, I have found myself happiest in Northern Espoo. Our bilingual family consists of my husband and our two daughters, who are now in the lower and upper primary schools.

My heart beats particularly strongly for the well-being of children and young people. Some years ago when Rödskog school's future was uncertain, I participated actively in the saving its continuation. I have been acting as the chairman of the board of school's parents association since 2018. The association arranges afternoon care, afternoon clubs and summer camps for kids of the school.

I stand for equal society and for sustainable development. The importance of work and entrepreneurship should be emphasized, as they are the key to the economic balance of our city and the whole society.

The planning of new residential zones should be long-sighted and only sustainable energy solutions should be applied in buildings. Residential areas may need to be built densely sometimes, and especially then the environment should be planned as park-like and as green as possible. High residential buildings do not fit everywhere, and definitely not very often in the landscapes of Espoo. City planning should be sustainable in every aspect and not something that will be regretted in one or two decades.

I have gained vast experience in work life in negotiating both abroad and in Finland, and I believe that the best results are achieved by thorough study, patience and by hearing those who think differently.

The best school

My heart beats particularly strongly for the well-being of children and young people. Espoo should not decrease the number of schools or resources in the schools nor increase significantly the number of pupils per class. We have the best schools in the world and we should keep that as such also in the future. Also the health and social services for the young shall be kept on a good level. The future of us all is in the hands of the children and young people.

Housing and construction

The planning of new residential zones should be long-sighted and only sustainable energy solutions should be applied in buildings. Residential areas may need to be built densely sometimes, and especially then the environment should be planned as park-like and as green as possible.

Well-run economy and business

We should create and support entrepreneurship and new innovations in Espoo as only that keeps the economy of the city in balance. Also the economy of the city shall be well taken care of and all investments looked thoroughly through before accepting them. In my my opinion, the funds for the wellbeing of the young and old shall be ensured and only then large investments accepted.
