Suvi Saarinen speaker at the EC2024
Campaign manager
University of Helsinki

I have been working for the last few years (since 2018) at the University of Helsinki in the field of communications supporting advocacy work. Now I have moved to the position of Communications Manager.

Previously, I worked as Communications Manager at Amnesty International's office in Finland (2015-2017), at the Finnish Ministry of the Environment (2012-2015) and at the Green Party in Finland (2007-2011). All my tasks have involved cooperation with decision-makers or political advocacy work.


A 30-minute presentation and a 30-minute discussion on how communication can support your organisation's advocacy work. A presentation on the University of Helsinki's #Researchmatters campaign and its results in time for the 2023 Parliamentary elections in Finland. The aim is to share best practice: how can communication support the university's education and science policy advocacy work?

This is a Presentation (low to medium interactive) taking place in ROOM D2 (CLE first floor)
