Towards an eco-welfare state – how to direct the transition?

We interviewed Mikko Jalas, Creative Sustainability Programme Director and Professor of Practice, about Towards Eco-Welfare State: Orchestrating for Systemic (ORSI) which is a joint research project between Tampere University, Finnish Environment Institute (Suomen ympäristökeskus, SYKE), VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Aalto University. The research is funded in 2019-2022/25 by The Strategic Research Council (SRC) at the Academy of Finland. The common research objective is analyzing the concept of eco-welfare state and developing policy and governance tools from the premise of a welfare state which highlights the justice and impartiality of societal transitions in Finland. The project is divided into four themes: public governance and budgeting for sustainability, fair transition in the everyday life of citizens, responsible innovation processes and steering of consumption choices.
