Ilppo Soininvaara

In the future I want to see cities that function better. I work in particular with urban development, strategy work and scenario and futures reviews. I am a geographer from Helsinki and I am receiving my doctorate in 2022 my topic being the policy of urbanisation. In my thesis I extensively examine the trajectories of urbanisation, the political debate related to it and different strategic interests.
