Leading society in a just way requires knowledge, will and ability to listen. Complex issues need to be answered together as a society. This means that politics needs to be the key to saving the world — one decision at a time.
My goal is to achieve a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable society and politics plays an important role in the way in which this can be achieved. However, politics is as demanding as ever and in a rapidly changing world, one must be able to make comprehensive long-term decisions. Instead of focusing solely on campaign promises, it is more important to elect decision-makers whose judgment can be trusted for any situation.
My platform for the 2015 elections will focus on future, economy, employment, education, Helsinki, peace and democracy.
