Futuretalks: Election spring

26.3. Panel discussion: Lifelong Learning 2.0

Without know-how, there will be no wellbeing, research or economic growth. How can people be enabled to gain work experience in their own field while still studying? Or how can it be ensured that their know-how remains relevant through a decade-long working career?

Aalto University and Aalto University Student Union are organising a parliamentary election panel with a focal point on combining work and studying as well as lifelong learning. The event is Finnish-language.

28.3. Cilmate change – Finland in the climate arena

Have you seen the hashtag #NytOnPakko around social media? Have you been wondering, what are Finland’s climate goals? Now you have a chance to collectively discuss climate change, hear about the IPCC report, see how Finland is doing globally on the climate arena, assess the climate goals of different political parties and think, how you can participate in climate action.

1.4. Movie night: Vice (2018)

In honour of the upcoming parliamentary election (14 Apr), AYY is offering its members a chance to see the societal comedy film Vice (2018).

In the main role, Christian Bale – familiar from the Batman films, among others – undergoes an astounding transformation into one of the men with the biggest impact on the recent history of the United States. Vice is about the life and career of former Vice President of the United States, Dick Cheney, as well as about the consequences of the concentration of power in Cabinets instead of the people.

Could the same happen in Finland as well?

Before the film screening, one of the makers of the Politbyroo podcast, the quick-witted Sini Korpinen and Juha Töyrylä present an introduction to the topic.

The film is screened at TOKYO ry’s Kino Sheryl cinema. The cinema is accessible. The discussion will be held in Finnish.

There are 80 tickets available to the screening. Binding sign-up via the link below:

Applications for the renovated Jämeräntaival 3 B apartments are open from the 11th of March to the 24th of March!

In May 2019 the renovation of Jämeräntaival 3 B will be completed and most of the apartments in the building are shared studios. Residents can move in to the apartments starting from the 2nd of May 2019. 

The AYY Board has decided that all AYY’s members with valid right of residence are given equal opportunity to apply for the Jämeräntaival 3 B apartments. Lots will be drawn to determine who gets an apartment. 

The application process for the apartments differs somewhat from the usual: 

  • You can apply for the apartments between the 11th of March and 24th of March 2019. 
  • The place in the queue for all applications submitted within the deadline will be drawn by lot. 
  • The lots will be drawn within different score groups. 
  • After the 24th of March 2019, the applications will continue according to the normal queuing process. 

A shared studio apartment is a cross between a shared apartment and a studio. Each tenant has a personal room with their own toilet/bathroom and a kitchenette, equipped with a fridge, freezer, oven and stove. Keeping the communal spaces clean and tidy is the responsibility of the tenants. 

Read the application instructions here. 

Find out more about the apartments and send your application to us via Domo starting Monday 11th March.

Apply to the Student Union’s Central Election Committee for 2019!

AYY’s highest decision-making body, the 45-member Representative Council, will be elected again next autumn. However, the Council election does not organise itself, so we are in need of volunteers.

Would you like to be involved with making AYY’s next Council election more visible, resonating and participatory than ever?

The call for applications to the Central Election Committee operating at the heart of the Council election has now been opened. For example, the Central Election Committee decides upon the polling and advance polling stations’ locations, establishes the Election Committees, reviews the candidacy notices and agreements on electoral alliances and groups, conducts the recount of the votes and oversees the election proceedings in general. A member of the Central Election Committee is not eligible to stand in the Representative Council election 2019.

Applications to the Central Election Committee are submitted via the electronic form at https://lomake.ayy.fi/hallinto/kvl/.

The application period runs until Sunday 17 Mar 2019 at 11.59 pm.

Further information: Administrative and HR Manager Johanna Pietiläinen (johanna.pietilainen (a) ayy.fi), +358 50 520 9434.

Suggest recipients for AYY’s acknowledgements by March 10th

Do you know a pioneer, unconventional bridge-builder or a cross-disciplinary hard worker in the Aalto community who deserves recognition? Suggest a recipient for the Aalto University Student Union acknowledgement reward for 2019.

You can make suggestions until March 10th. After the suggestion period is over, the acknowledgement working group will propose the final recipients of acknowledgements to AYY’s Board. The acknowledgements can be given to the student union’s current or former members and employees.

Read more about the acknowledgements and suggest a recipient via this link: https://lomake.ayy.fi/hallinto/bling/

If you’d like to take part in deciding who get the rewards, you can alsoapply for the acknowledgement working group.

The acknowledgment working group receives the proposals for the acknowledgment recipients, discusses the proposals and proposes a resolution on the final recipients to AYY’s Board.

The group is looking for motivated students with different backgrounds. Apply here (in Finnish, translation coming soon): https://lomake.ayy.fi/hallinto/hakemuslomake-huomionosoitustyoryhmaan/

 

AYY is looking for a designer and maker for the Master of Ceremonies’ staff

AYY is turning nine already, but there is still something missing from AYY. A Master of Ceremonies’ staff, that is!

The Master of Ceremonies’ staff is used at the annual balls and possibly at other ceremonious events of associations or, in the case of AYY, the Student Union. At the festivities, the Master of Ceremonies thumps the ground to get the party crowd’s attention, for example, before a speech. The Master of Ceremonies’ staff is usually around two metres long and has a logo, emblem or other symbol representing the association at its head. The staff usually has a base, which can be either decorative or simple.

With the AYY annual ball approaching once again, the need for a Master of Ceremonies’ staff becomes very real as well. AYY wants a staff that represents our community. This being the case, we are looking for a designer and maker for our staff! This staff will be used by out Student Union most likely for decades to come at all more ceremonious events, and it will act as an important and valuable symbol of AYY. A reward will be settled upon with the maker. So, leave your handprint in AYY’s history and submit your design via this form by 24 Mar: https://lomake.ayy.fi/taide/ayys-master-of-ceremonies-staff/

You can find images of associations’ existing staffs as well as AYY’s existing symbols here: https://ayyfi.sharepoint.com/:f:/s/Taidetoiminta/EjX0eIqzIzFOjxpMhCG3ipIBQKutOvNBzAqvQeyvxQv51g?e=vp3DLu

Both the staff and its head and base can – and should – be designed and manufactured using your own creativity. The images can be used to help perceive how the staff is used. AYY’s symbols can be used either as they are or to provide individual elements to contribute to the staff’s shape. The important thing is for the staff to represent AYY in some way!

If necessary, some of the parts can be commissioned from an external manufacturer, but most of all, we are hoping for personal handiwork! Aalto Infrastructures has promised the staff’s maker access to the Aalto workshops and offers materials for manufacturing the staff as well.

All questions and requests for further information will be answered by Marianne Honkasaari (marianne.honkasaari@ayy.fi, 0409645608).
