Hi, I’m Maire Turunen, an environmental educator originally from Joensuu and now living in Helsinki. I’ve graduated from SYKLI Environmental School of Finland. I have over five years of working experience from The Environmental School Polku operated by the Helsinki Metropolitan Area Reuse Centre. I’ve worked as a coordinator, an environmental educator as well as a waste and waste water advisor in schools and kindergartens.

My basic education is Master of Arts and I am especially interested in the creative side of environmental education, where I’ve found an inspiring operational environment. I have planned
“Earth Play” an educational music and movement session for the Environmental School Polku and been the creative force in the Palloässät project, where we planned educational material for kindergartens on the Agenda 2030. It is really great to find myself in North Karelia and Joensuu now in environmental education tasks and at the same time to develop cooperation across regional borders in Finland and national borders of the world. I’m looking forward to my new and diverse tasks with ENO!

Maire will be working for ENO during our CEO Mika’s leave of absence 1.8.2020-31.7.2021. You can contact her via email maire.turunen(at)enoprogramme.org and phone +358 50 3666 555. You can always use our general email info(at)enoprogramme.org as well.
