My name is Elli and I come from Finland. Currently, I'm volunteering in Denmark. I'm especially interested in sustainable lifestyle, ecovillages and community-life.
Before volunteering, I worked as a climate change consultant with corporate clients. I have a master’s degree in environmental science. I have done volunteering in organic farms, ecotourism places, and ecovillages across Europe.
In general, I am a cheerful person who loves to explore life and myself. I need to be connected to nature and just listen to the quietness and the beauty of this world. I’m interested in philosophy, spirituality, and religions. I practice ashtanga yoga and meditation but I’m also started to learn more about those wisdom traditions that we used to have here in Finland.
I'm up to new volunteering possibilities after Christmas 2021. I believe that life will take me there where I should be and where I can learn those lessons that I need the most. Let’s see if the place is your host place :)
Thanks for reading and maybe we meet one day soon!
