Sanna Marin will open its four-day programme of speeches, panels, awards and in-person networking events.
Sanna Marin is the former Prime Minister of Finland (2019-2023). Recently nominated strategic counsellor to the Tony Blair Institute, Marin became the world's youngest Prime Minister at 34 when elected in 2019.
During her premiership, Marin led her country through the quickest NATO accession process in the alliance’s history. Her government passed many progressive reforms in Finland, including the world's most ambitious climate laws aiming for carbon neutrality by 2035, as well as major reforms improving gender equality, healthcare, education and human rights.
Marin’s government is widely regarded as one of the most successful in managing the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly in terms of minimizing both the loss of lives and the economic impact resulting from the outbreak.
Marin specialises in the topics of geopolitics, strategic autonomy, climate change, and female leadership.
