I have a background in political science, European politics and advocacy in youth issues. I am based in Helsinki, Finland now but have lived abroad for ten years, half of which I spent in Brussels. My main interests are youth involvement in EU and UN youth policies, climate and sustainable development.
Why I joined FutureLab Europe? I joined FutureLab Europe because it is a network for like-minded young people with great ideas and ambitions.
Why do I think that Europe needs active citizens? Active citizenship is important because democracies need the people to take part in society and the involvement of young people is crucial for the development of the European project
