"I have participated in several provincial tourism projects, guidance groups, education, and excursions. The projects have given know-how to my own projects.

In 1999 – 2001 I planned the nature tourism project of Outokumpu and executed it together with the Juojärvi fishing district. The aim of the project was to create the foundation for the developing of nature tourism and the Nature and Wilderness Park in Outokumpu. The project included education, product development, marketing, networking of the partners and planning of the development of Nature and Wilderness Park in Outokumpu. The project was financed by Leader Reg’d of Joensuu Region.

I planned the project Children’s Own fishing site in 2001 together with the Juojärvi fishing district, ISAK (the development centre for independent management of the disabled), and various companies.

The Friends of Outokumpu Nature and Wilderness Park Red’g administrate the project. The extensive and obstacle free Children’s Own fishing site in the Nature and Wilderness Park area was completed during the summer of 2004. The project was financed by Leader Reg’d of Joensuu Region, the Juojärvi fishing district, Outokumpu Turula Oy, Outokummun Matkailu Oy, Outokummun Osuuspankki, Outokummun Puhelin Oy and CNC-Metal Oy."
