Réka Tóth, 28, sits in ASCHAN café Helsinki, and fills our booth with laughter. “Most people went to Valencia! But to me this project sounded so appealing that I was not concerned about the weather,” she smirks. Réka is in Helsinki as part of the Climate-KIC Pioneers into Practice programme. She has travelled all the way from Hungary to spend a month analysing smart city indexes and sustainability issues in Kalasatama, especially the new Sompasaari area.
