Taking over the city!


The Student Union opened its campaign for the Municipal Elections (taking place later this year) today. In the campaing opening HYY collected students’ ideas about the Helsinki of dreams. Today the Student Union collected ideas on the central and Meilahti campuses and tomorrow it is time to visit Viikki and Kumpula.

HYY asked the students to write or draw their ideas, memories or problems and put them on the map of the Helsinki district. The students wished for better public transport, separate lanes for cycling and more recycling. Parks and beaches were mentioned as the best part of Helsinki.

The HYY board will use the wishes and complaints in its Municipal Elections campaign.
