This page both introduces me, Ville Tulkki, a candidate in the 2021 municipal elections in Espoo, as well as has some links on Finnish elections and on eligibility to vote.
I live in Lintuvaara with my wife and two sons. I’m a scientist researching nuclear energy, especially its role in the future sustainable world. I have been a member of the Green party for a few years, and this is my first time being a candidate in an election. My previous activities have included founding a pro-science environmental organization Ecomodernist Society of Finland.
You can vote me with the number 215 in Espoo.
My vision of Espoo
- We need to build a sustainable future for us and our children. This includes actions to mitigate climate change, building a city where nature can also florish, and providing services for the people.
- In order to do this, the policies we enact must be evidence-based. Understanding science is a key to planning future, but also important is to understand we are guided by our values, not abstract numbers.
- Espoo must be a city for everyone.
