Liisa Poussa

Specialist, Foresight and Strategy


Liisa works in Sitra’s Foresight team, which produces long-term foresight data in anticipation of the future and supports Finnish society in interpreting and utilising the data. The project Liisa is currently working on is called “Future makers”. The idea of the project is to develop and provide training in future-oriented thinking and societal influencing skills. Liisa firmly believes that the future is built now and in collaboration with others – so, come and join us!


Liisa has a passion for doing things together, no matter whether it means developing things, coming up with new ideas or finding solutions to problems. In doing so, she applies the tools she finds from design thinking and common sense and believes that creativity is like a muscle that can be trained.

Previously, Liisa has worked in climate communications and as a consultant and has occasionally also delved into the wonderful world of working-life research. She has master’s degrees in social sciences and in service design.

What else?

Liisa relaxes through cultural activities, likes to explore the world by bike and dreams about trips to faraway places.  Time spent with family and friends is one the best things in life.
