More about this expert:

I have a versatile background in policy making, consulting, communications and civic engagement. My core expertise covers climate and energy policy, but I have worked also on e.g. sustainable transport, circular economy, foresight and crowdsourcing. An interesting factoid: I have attended more UN Climate Conferences than anyone else in Finland. I am a Partner and Chair of the Board at Tyrsky Consulting. The recently founded company provides expert services in the fields of climate, energy and sustainability. I also work as a Senior Advisor at Sitra, The Finnish Innovation Fund. I advise Sitra's programme on resource wisdom and carbon neutrality. I served as a Member of Parliament for close to 11 years, including as vice-chair in committees on the environment and future. For four years I worked as a Climate Policy Specialist in the Prime Minister's Office. I am also a substitute Member of the European Parliament. I have been an invited speaker, lecturer or panelist in approximately 1,000 different events, including at 15 universities (e.g. Oxford and Stanford) and in 20 countries. I have a Master's in Social Sciences from the University of Tampere. I am the author of two books. I have lived in New Delhi, India and travelled in 57 countries.
