Name: Ari Laakso
Title: Science Communicator
Motto: "Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” Albert Einstein
“When I was younger my dream was to follow my family tradition and become a hunter and fisherman in the tundra. I followed my dreams and combined science with family tradition. I started to study subsistence livelihoods in the north.”
”Through my work as an Arctic science communicator, I am privileged to be able to work with a wide variety of different people and scientific topics."
”It is better to travel than to stay put.” The strange thing is that I am always arriving in the same places. It seems that my world is a constant travel between the places I love. My work takes me to new places that I learn to like, such as Island of Crete and Murmansk.”
