I am a Lappeenranta-based engineer and mother of two teenagers.
I got involved in politics because I want to work for a better world for future generations.
It is essential to adapt all actions to the limits of the earth’s carrying capacity.
My aims for the next government term are to:
- Continue the green transition away from the use of increasingly expensive fossil fuels. Ensure that the transition is fair and equitable for the disadvantaged.
- Continue to pay tribute to education. Increase resources for education and ensure that schools are a safe learning environment.
- Tackle the biodiversity loss. Without a thriving diverse natural world, there can be no thriving economy. Stronger nature conservation and, for example, stricter limits on mining, will provide the basis for a sustainable economy.
- Bring about more humane education policies and low-threshold support for mental health for young persons. The mental health emergency of students must be taken seriously. Without thriving young people, we have no future.
- To find ways to tackle the skills shortage. There is a shortage of people to fill vacancies in many organizations. This threatens to erode both our public services and the competitiveness of our businesses. A wide range of measures are needed: diverse education, reform of social security towards basic income, better access to foreign labour, etc.
- At working life, to ensure genuine access for all to welfare services and fair ground rules.
- Promote the vitality of SMEs in particular and improving the conditions for entrepreneurship. Enforce social security for entrepreneurs.
- To improve the situation of the poorest. We can afford that! For example, let’s make health care co-payments more affordable.
- Ensure that every child has equal opportunities for a good life. Increase resources for early childhood education and step up support for families with children.
- Ensure the welfare of animals. Fur farming is a thing of the past.
