My name is Nora Lindström and I’m a Green Party politician. I'm a 33-year-old researcher and human rights activist. I live in Munkkiniemi with my American husband, our newborn daughter, and our Cambodian street cat. I moved back to Helsinki in 2015 after over a decade of studying and working on four different continents.
Defending human rights, promoting equality, and respecting minority rights are important issues for me. I have experience of working with poor and marginalised communities in both Asia and Africa, as well as in Finland. At the moment, I’m completing a PhD at the University of Helsinki on urban poverty in Malawi. The rights of irregular and undocumented migrants are also close to my heart; prior to my maternity leave I worked as a specialist on these at issues at the Helsinki Deaconess Institute.
I believe strongly in everyone’s ability to affect social change, within the context of their own lives. I recharge through exercise, ceramics, literature, and gardening. I see Helsinki as great city in many respects, and want to take part in developing it into an even more open, international, and tolerant place for us all.
I ran in the 2017 municipal elections as a candidate for the Helsinki Greens and got 165 votes. The party is now proposing me as a member of the city's education board's Swedish section. I am also a member of the board of the Western Helsinki Greens (LäHeVi), as well as active in Finlands Svenska Gröna (Grifi), and Helsingin Vihreät Naiset (HENNA).
My latest statements can be found on my Facebook page and on my Twitter account.
I'd love to hear from you regarding current issues in Helsinki or if you want to know more about me.
