My main themes are climate, education and equality.

I am Veli, Secretary General of the Greens in Finland.

I am devoted to working for equality, for human rights and for future generations. Read more about me here.

In my home town of Mikkeli, I am Chairman of the Urban Environment Board, Chairman of the Greens in the Mikkeli Municipal Council, and a member of the South Savo County Executive. At the Greens in Finland, I am in charge of leading the party’s climate work. I am also running for Party Secretary, elected at the Greens’ national convention in June.
