Environmental Awareness Adviser, Nordic Council of Ministers (Tallinn, Estonia)
Madis Tilga have been working with sustainability issues for some time now, initiating and executing co-operation projects between Nordics and Baltics. Much of the work has evolved around the transition to bio-economy and circular economy. He would argue that this simply is a quest for making our economies healthier and more resilient. Not that much environmentalist approach. Nature does not need economy but we do and the economy needs all these diverse ecosystem services. So it is about economy. Cities have often taken the centre stage in these developments as they are natural innovation drivers, take climate leadership and need to be creative to accommodate growing urban population in a wealthy and healthy way. Madis is very passionate about modern city planning, how attractive places are created cityscape continuously re-invented. His other engagement is with social start-up Nutriloop, where they design carbon and nutrient looping solutions for growing healthier food and divert massive amounts of carbon from air (where it poses problem) to soil (where it adds value).
