Life flies by so fast and the kids grow up so quickly that it’s nice to plan for the long term and try to contribute to the world that my great-great grandchildren will live in. I think we all like to know that there is wilderness out there - it’s a basic human need, even for city people. It’s great that all of us will be able to put aside our own little plots of forest and really make a difference.

Sophia Ehrnrooth

Board member, creative strategist.

I volunteer as the Foundation's Creative Strategist. I believe that we need new tools for forest conservation. For a number of years I have listened to people from all sectors of life, and there seems to be a general concern and willingness to act privately for forest conservation. To put it simply, without big areas of biodiverse, thriving forestlands we are depleted both as individuals and as nations. I welcome the Helsinki Foundation.

Board member, founder.

I am the start-up volunteer. I’ve built start-ups in media and finance, but never a Foundation. I love the outdoors and clean air. I’m concerned about the direction the world is going and I want to make a difference. Together many like minded people can do magic. Let’s save something for others and have fun doing it.

Katja Frostell

Katja Frostell

Communications director.

As a communications specialist, I volunteer on the Foundation's social media campaign. Governments have pledged their commitment to the new Sustainable Development Goals, which call for urgent action to ensure sustainable, protected ecosystems and to combat climate change. I am excited to contribute to a proactive mission which allows the concerned citizen to make a difference and conserve land for future generations.

I'm enthusiastic about people taking important things like conservation into their own hands instead of leaving it up to the government. Everyone seems to be concerned about the planet, but there aren't many things you can do as an individual that will actually improve things long-term (unless you are Steve Irwin or Ted Turner). It's great to be part of something that allows anyone to do so.

Angel Barretto

Elizabeth Angel Barretto

International Coordinator.

I have often dreamed of doing something great in the world that would serve people hundreds of years from now. That's why I volunteer for Helsinki Foundation. I love being able to put my time and talents into something that can be remembered and enjoyed forever. My family and friends have also been stoked by the little heart-shaped pieces of land they've become Guardians of for their weddings and birthdays. I think we vote with our money and the world needs more of us doing good. So I spread the word about this easy and affordable way to do just that!
