Maria Tinika

Founder of the initiative group 'Trees of Saint Petersburg'

Since 1996, Maria Tinika worked in the leading real estate companies in Saint Petersburg such as Adveks, Colliers, Eurosib, and VIYM.

Since 2018, she has been engaged in social activity. She initiated the launch of the public movement ‘Trees of Saint Petersburg’. Due to the activities of the movement, the first map of trees in Saint Petersburg was created. The movement activists plan to register all the trees in the regional geographic information system. They also campaign for planting new trees on the city’s streets. The movement also plans to return the Green Building Committee to the structure of the city administration and create a city program that will create a space for communication between city residents, business and the city government, so they can work on the development of new squares and parks and take care of trees.
