As a Climate Ambassador, I will promote our Green Deal goals locally and regionally working together with national as well as European levels. My aim is to increase dialogue with local authorities and citizens of my home city and region on how to best put our climate and environmental policy commitments into practice. Tampere has already taken many important steps towards circular economy and carbon neutrality, but more can be done. Good local practices can be linked better to European goals.

Since 2019 I conduct investigations into the negative consequence of climate anxiety in young adults. These consequences have an impact on the mental health of individuals that perceived themselves and their community as unable to purpose effective behavior to mitigate climate change. The scientific literature on this issue suggested that the perception of self and community efficacy could lead to adopting pro-environmental behavior. I would study this phenomenon and spread information about it.

As a person that grew up with a comfort of a modern life’s pleasures, it took it’s time until I’ll make myself aware at what cost it is coming. Indeed, it made me first sad and sorrow. Thinking the ways to overcome them brought me to world where science on hands with ecology and universe presents us a smart way of existence. The world where we one step forward in understanding our planet better and cooperating with it smarter.

People have a major impact on the environment, with each individual emitting anywhere from 3.18 ton of GHG each year. Using renewable and clean energy will have a significant influence on climate protection. In my lectures, I have utilised a variety of applications to compute carbon footprints, water footprints, and climate effects, such as electricity maps and climate accounts. These apps motivate people and assist to reduce personal emissions. I hope I can further introduce these apps to new audiences.

We need to know the worst problem we face as humanity, the climate change, and the best solutions we have to deal with it.

That's why I enjoy creating content and researching from a multidisciplinary perspective as an environmental scientist. It's time to act.

In a time where “facts are uncertain, values in dispute, stakes high, and decisions urgent” (Funtowicz and Ravetz, 1993: 744), effective communication and informed policy-making have never been more crucial. My objective as a Climate Pact Ambassador will be to explain the science behind climate change in an accessible way to the student body, both in schools and at university, and to equip them with the tools to better grasp the complexity of current environmental challenges.
