Sanna-Kaisa Saloranta, or Sannis, works as a Project Co-ordinator on the New Forms of Participation project. The project aims to strengthen participatory democracy through experiments and studies and by supporting the adoption of new forms of participation. Sannis’s days are filled with project co-ordination, assistant specialist duties and producing stakeholder events, among other things.
Sannis gained previous experience with Demos Helsinki, as a teaching assistant at the University of Helsinki and as a volunteer for Pro Ethical Trade Finland. She has Master of Social Sciences and Bachelor of Business Administration degrees.
Sannis is a curious thinker and developer keen to test her theoretical ideas in practice. She is inspired by discussions in which differences of opinion are seen as enriching and thinking is allowed to move to completely new areas.
In her time off, Sannis enjoys nature in all seasons and the company of her loved ones. Part of her world is located in the Alps, where she always gets her best ideas while hiking.
