How would you develop the Student Union’s policies?


What should the Student Union focus on? What should we advocate for at the University, Helsinki or nationally? What should our stand be on tuition fees, student housing or students' subsistence? What kind of activities should HYY provide and organize for its members?

We are renewing our guiding principles this year and turningn them into a new policy paper. The work will be split into five different working groups which all go through the Student Union’s current priorities and create new ones.

The working groups are open to all HYY members. If you can’t make it to the first meeting but would like to participate, please contact the person responsible for the group. The first meetings will be held during the spring.
