Group host November 22, 2005 1:16 AM

Hi! I'm the host of FWA. I hope you all enjoy this group!
If I expect you to introduce yourselves I guess I should introduce myself, too.
Well... I'm a university student from Espoo, Finland. I study in Helsinki University. I'm majoring in horticulture. My life is quite simple - doesn't take too many words to express it. Most of the time I study either at home or at the university. The rest of the time I try to make the world a better place here in Care2 or somewhere else. My friends are also very important to me.
I'm an animal lover with a cat.
That was pretty much it. Now it's your turn!

Answer to Jouni:
I don't know why the country list isn't working. I've been trying it myself a couple of times but it allways says that I don't have any members outside of the USA. Has this thing ever been working?

It's good to know that there's something going on with Finland too.

About me: I'm  currently living in Madrid, but will soon be back home in Finland to make some more studies. I'm originally from Helsinki, but I'm studying leadership in a school of economics and business administration in Lappeenranta. Not always really my thing since I'm more interested making people feel happy than making money.. I live together with my boyfriend and on my sparetime I like to do sports, tap dance or go out in the nature kayaking or trekking.

Kiitos kutsusta Jouni! December 06, 2005 11:01 PM

Hello everybody!
I think it's a great idea to introduce ourselves in the group!

I'm living in Helsinki at the moment. Woprking hard in a huge iron store. As a horticulturist I take care of the gardenint department, especially plants. I don't really like this doing money -job...

I have been working on organic farms and thats more my thing. Though there is many good sides of living in a city.... It feels great to meet friends and family after 8 years of living abroad or in countryside (which is abroad, too -outside of Keha 3, You know... just kidding!)

Well, nice to meet You all!

Welcome to the group Mafa!
I know exactly what you mean by that Kehä 3 thing. I was working outside Kehä 3 last summer - four months - and I feel like I have missed the whole summer. Not that I didn't enjoy my time "abroad" but somehow I didn't come to follow the world events and anything that happened during the summer is completely unfamiliar to me.

Hey There! December 12, 2005 2:15 PM

Thx Jouni for inviting me here! I'm really happy to see other Finns meeting around this and/or any other concrete, important issue.

I am a traveller but have my roots deeply set into the rocks of the Finnish archipelago. I live close to the waters, the meadows and the forests around me and I feel bad when it seems they feel bad.  Moose are my totem animals. I'm looking for soul mates and kindred warriors. I'm looking forward to hearing what you're up to.

I've just left Finland for the Middle East, but was living in the Helsinki area for 5 years.  I'm married to a Finnish man, and will always be connected to Finland because of family and friends.  I can speak Finnish at intermediate/upper intermediate level - fairly large vocab, good pronunciation, but bad grammar It is great to meet you all, and I look forward to staying current on Finnish environmental concerns, and adding my voice to protect the beautiful country that Finland is.

Hope you all do not mind that a 65 year old shut-in with a kitty (14yr) companion has joined your group!  When working was among many things a Social Worker, now I do what good I can do by signing petitions and harassing government officials when they are in the wrong.  One of my dreams was to visit Finland, now I do it by armchair travel.

Want to wish all the members a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Am also a tree hugger and my little piece of ground has been recognized by the Nat'l Wildlife Federation as a Natural Habitat.

I got an invitation to join, thank you. Now what should I tell about myself... I study English philology at the university. Nature and animals are a very important part of my life and right at the moment I'm most conserned about the global warming. It is just sad that sometimes the majority of people can't see a catastrophy coming...
And. I'm a friend of wolves. I love "howling" (read "music") and enjoy going for walks in the woods.
Let's take care of what we have left of our nature!

Kiitos kutsusta.

Hei vaan kaikille :) April 19, 2006 12:42 PM

Hi,

Thank you Jouni for inviting me  to this group. It is nice to have a forum to discuss about how to spare our unique nature. I love animals and forests and all nature and I hope we could have it untouched near the cities too.  I am an old horselover, we bought  our first horse with my sister at the year 1973. She had then 4 foals and I still have one of them, who is now 26 years old and also his son It is learning all the time, the horses are good teachers and now I try to give them so natural life surroundins as possible.

I have also a cat, very clever and lovely cat

At my old ages I have learned many new things to save our nature. Have you heard about EM? Effektive mikro-organismen? You can use it in so many places.

But later more about that,

I hope you all a fine sunny spring and summer,

Marjatta

I'm Liisa, I grew up in Finland and have been then living 5 years in Germany and 6 years in the Netherlands since I left Finland to study. Now my circle through Middle Europe may get complete if I really decide to return where I came from. Maybe I'll be back in Helsinki next year.
I like to support the protection of the Finnish nature by supporting Suomen Luonnonsuojeluliitto (www.sll.fi) and I will buy christmas presents at their store with nice, natural products (www.luontokauppa.com).

Thanks Jouni! (your invitation is already very old, but I'm just now beginning to get active here in groups).

 My name is Marc and i am a 50 years old Frenchman into Shamanism and Druidism.

 My first connection to Finland was curiously through the band called Killing Joke, which i saw in Switzerland.

 I meet a traditional Finnish Music band in London a few years later and was amazed at the beauty of the people i saw as well as their positive and harmonious attitude toward the crowd and myself.

  There is a lot i got to learn about Finland but i think i will learn with pleasure. Regards to all members. Marc
