Project Manager, Cluster for circular economy at City of Helsinki | FinlandMira Jarkko is managing the Cluster for Circular Economy at the city of Helsinki, cooperating with more than 80 organisations to enable new innovations and new businesses in circular economy, particularly in the construction sector. Her experience in making cities sustainable goes way back, working on projects focused on citizen engagement, developing sustainable tools for businesses, and initiating Helsinki’s first carbon neutral action plan. Currently Mira is very interested in enhancing the reuse and overall recycling of construction material. Dealing with demolition waste needs a lot of co-operation, new innovative business models, and out-of-the-box thinking. To accomplish this, Mira concentrates on concrete actions and connecting the right people at the right time.
