More about this expert:

I am materials scientist with strong desire to create happiness in sustainable society. Recycling and circular economy are my true loves. I also get tickling of energy efficiency and bigger entities like sustainability in construction and smart cities. I have worked as a scientist and in advisor role, thus I have seen many sides of business life from supervising ones interest, standardization to creating new things by research. At the moment I have strong desire to help people think and also act. In recent years I have moderated and facilitated work shops and roundtable discussions, and also worked in creating active community Aalto Future Club. I believe in communicating with people, sharing ideas and finding solutions together (e.g. boundary object). But talk and reports are not enough: we have to find the way to bring up systemic change and ecosystem thinking. To be able to create new sometimes means that you need to destroy old ones. It won't be one event, report or speech but it can happen if we slowly can promote new kind of thinking as a whole. My passion is change.
