Sitra

We share a passion for making Finland a pioneer of sustainable well-being – and we take our vision seriously and work in any way we can to achieve it. We base what we do on expertise and foresight. As an agile, experienced, future-oriented organisation, we have a wide variety of tools at our disposal to identify the need for change and to make it happen. Our role as a future-oriented fund involves creating preconditions for reform, spurring everyone towards making a change and providing opportunities for co-operation. What it means in practice is that Sitra investigates, explores and develops operating models in close co-operation with other responsible operators to support public administration.

At the WCEF2017 marketplace lounge, we will discuss our role in building the future, the different areas where we work and especially our circular economy road map. Our experts will be present to answer your questions and to hear your ideas! See the programme below for times.
