Helsinki is the capital of Finland – the main stage of culture, politics and business. It is not always remembered that Helsinki is also the largest student city in Finland. Every tenth inhabitant of Helsinki is a higher education student. Therefore, there is a total of more than 62,000 of us. Just from HYY's members, about 20,000 live in Helsinki.

Municipal elections are held every four years in Finland, and this year is election year. The elections will be held on the 28th of October 2012.
