Mikael is the Director of Development for the municipality of Korsholm. He has been involved in the Cirkulär Ekonomi Korsholm project since its inception and is an active member of the project’s steering group.
In Mikael’s opinion, the circular economy is a sustainable way to take things in the right direction for both the economy and the environment. The consumption of goods and consequently natural resources is currently alarmingly high. New and innovate solutions made possible by the circular economy will help us to find new ways to deal with consumption and the production of goods.
In his free time, Mikael enjoys spending time at his summer cottage, playing ball games and travelling.
