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.
