Who are you, and what do you do?
My name is Aleksanteri Repo, and I am an entrepreneur from Kouvola, Finland. In all that I do, I try to think of the community and society around me, and I try to do things benefitting it. For example, arranging public art projects, running a co-working space or a bike share company.
The CIRC4Life Design Challenge, launched in July 2019, invited design students, professionals, and citizens EU - and worldwide, to take part in designing a more sustainable way of living.
