Why would you join the Greens in Järvenpää?
The goals of the Greens addressed my 18 year old self as I felt a great urge to make the world a more just place. In the Greens combines economic as well as social and environmental sustainability. The balance of these three is vitally important so that we can update our welfare state into 2030’s.
For a long time I took part in the Greens’ events and “hanged” along. I joined as a member before a working period in Tanzania. When coming back I realized that I need to actively influence the things important to me. Being Green matched my values the best, especially environmental issues, reducing inequality and adding community spirit.
When I moved to Järvenpää in 2017 I found partners who shared my values in the Greens. Most appealing aspects of the party were fast reaction to climate change and responsible dialog policy.
I wanted to save Lake Tuusula. We set up a civil movement called Pro Tuusulanjärvi. That’s when came the feeling that individual people can influence even big things. So I joined in the Greens. Now I want to save the world for my children and grandchildren.
I joined the Greens in spring 2012 when the first presidential campaign of Pekka Haavisto was at the hottest. The Greens’ activity took me in at the spot, and I experienced a positive surprise of being chosen as a vice municipal representative, and later a municipal representative.
