I want to help digitalization forward so that Europe would lead the transition, not just adopt foreign innovations. We have to support our development but simultaneously secure the right of people, consumers and workers. On my first term as an MEP, issues relating to the digitalization has been a test for me and I achieved nicknames such as “Digi-MEP” and “Madame Roaming”.
Equal rights and equality in all levels are also close to my heart. We must take care of the individuals and families in the change of working life. Societies have also responsibility on children. Welfare economy and fighting against the tax evasion have to be in the core of European financial management policy.
We need to secure the freedom. We need the European Union that is able to act. I want to accomplish just transition by the means of restoring hope.
It is time for #ourcentury – and we need a strong and operational European Union to tackle the challenges that we face in our everyday life.
I am an MEP and a mother who relaxes from the politics by walking with our dog Luka, by participating in a book club and by being a driver for my children. The highlights of my free time are spending time in our summer cottage and having long hikes in the Finnish nature.
