Committees work for the common good

Our committees focus on brainstorming and developing activities for our Student Union’s different sectors. This translates to organising events, supporting organisations, conducting advocacy work related to educational policy and developing our University community, for instance. The committees are open to all our members, and you can join their activities at any point during the year.

Development Cooperation Committee

Is there an idealist within you? Is global responsibility and equality important to you? Come join the cooperation development committee!

The committee is in charge of HYY’s cooperation development project, arranges events related to cooperation development, global education and maintains the discussion about the need for cooperation development. During our current Moçambique project we’re focusing on young people’s equality.

Environmental Committee

Do you have a passion for climate issues? Are you interested in interdisciplinary cooperation with other students who share the same interests as you? Come join us!

The Environmental Committee organizes events and campaigns related to the environment, such as nature hikes, workforce excursions and food waste dinners. We promote sustainable values in our student community, raise awareness and urge people to act for the environment. Volunteering in a committee is also a great way to learn valuable work skills in a relaxed and supporting environment. Come save the world with us!

Events Committee

The Events Committee is the perfect place for HYY members interested in event organisation. You will get to take part in brainstorming and realizing HYY’s events and creating the committee’s own activities according to your own preferences. The Committee works together with HYY’s producer and the member of the Board in charge of events – and, naturally, everything is done on a low threshold.
