Estonian Cooperation Assembly
Executive Director
Tallinn, Estonia
I am an Estonian democracy artist, change maker and urbanist.
I direct the Estonian Cooperation Assembly - a competence centre founded in 2007 by the President of Estonia - working on policy recommendations and initiatives on societal issues, like e-democracy, pension system reform, public sector reform. In every two years the Cooperation Assembly also publishes the Estonian Human Development Report. The next report, issued in autumn 2019, will focus on public space and democracy.
Since 2016 I have lead online and offline advocacy efforts to build a critical mass of users for the citizens initiatives platform known as Rahvaalgatus.ee. The participation platform is the direct result from the Estonian Open Government Partnership action plan 2014–2016, serving as the digital infrastructure for the citizen right to collectively address the Parliament of Estonia.
I often advise the public sector, political parties and civic organizations in Estonia and beyond on co-creation, open governance and systemic change. I am passionate about democratic renewal and local governance that relies on collective wisdom and digital opportunities.

Master educated at the University of Tartu (Estonia) and University of Tampere (Finland), I continue educating myself in open knowledge & governance and democracy issues.

I am also an urbanist and for almost 10 years have been active in shaping the public space and protecting the public interest in Tallinn, Estonia.
