In a fair economy poverty is eliminated. Small income takers are taxed moderately and polluters more severely. Taxation favours fair trade and clean, healthy food. Clean technology, like intelligent transport systems and small wind power stations bring 30.000 new jobs.
BETTER FLOW IN FAMILIES’ EVERYDAY LIFE. Parental leave is flexibly divided between the parents. Part-time work is supported while the child is under school-age. The Basic income system brings security to entrepreneurs and temporarily employed as well as for those with fragmented jobs. In public services the main focus needs to be on prevention rather than corrective measures. Compromises regarding the quality of education and child day-care are not accepted.
CLEAN NATURE and recreation areas are available in every residential area. The green belt surrounding the metropolitan area from Sipoonkorpi to Nuuksio and Porkkala is preserved. Porkkala will be given the status of a national park.
Forests, swamps and the Baltic Sea are protected.
COMMUTING will become quick and clean, when a comprehensive railway network is built for the whole district of Uusimaa: Länsimetro (the Western Subway), Pisara-rata (the “Drop-Railway”), railways to Lohja, Nummela and Östersundom. The railway westwards along the coastline and the Hanko-Hyvinkää railway are utilized more efficiently.
For 13 years I have been active in matters concerning municipal economy, urban planning and the environment.
