“I am fascinated by futures thinking, community development and new kinds of active lifestyles, as well as sustainable spatial design.”

Sassi has studied architecture in a multi-disciplinary ‘Creative Sustainability’ Master’s program, focusing on eco-social sustainability at Aalto University. Her Master’s thesis explores to understand diverse phenomena of unstructured leisure time physical activity of adolescents in urban space.
