Meet the team 


We are the current officers at Circle Centre. We are passionate about circular economy and sustainability. That's why we are dedicating our free time to promote a culture of sharing in place of a culture of individual consumption.

Wictoria Larsson

Content Creation Officer

Wictoria is a masters student in Human Ecology (Culture, Power and Sustainbulity) at Lund University and comes from Skåne. She chose to get involved with Circle Centre because she believes in the importance of showing that alternatives to overconsumption do exists and can be very beneficial for people, economically, ecologically and socially. She is passionate about degrowth and appreciates the ideas behind “ordinary” libraries, sharing and open access, and therefore want to work for an organisation which is founded on the same principles, but which contains a wider range of things to borrow. She finds crafting very soothing, enjoys trips to the sea and dinners with friends.

Board of Directors 


Ronja Karvinen

Ronja tends to find it hard to remain in one place and is constantly on the go. Her very social character makes her somewhat of an exception to the stereotypical Finnish person. She is passionate about finding solutions for more sustainable lifestyles, and finds joy in sharing ideas with people around her. In her spare time she loves to bake vegan pastries, to sip espressos at crowded cafés and to study development theories. When life becomes a bit too hectic she rolls out her workout mat and tries to finish way too complicated youtube-workouts.
