My activities in the Riigikogu are based on two fundamental values: local community and living environment. A strong and competent community ensures that public interests are pursued, and it is in its long-term interests that the living environment in its diversity be preserved. These two fundamental values determine local identity. Local identities together underpin our Estonian culture, its persistence and development. This in turn has an important role in security and safety. It is short-sighted to regard safety and security only within social and geopolitical dimensions, leaving out the existential issues that are linked to the relations between environment and humans.
