In the coming year, prominent issues include developing AYY’s operations to become ecologically sustainable, influencing in the spring’s European and parliamentary elections and planning the new Student Centre, among others.
“AYY has done excellent work on its vision in recent years. The Student Union has a brand-new policy paper, a comprehensive brand strategy, a clear and ambitious real estate strategy and a freshly updated direction reaching boldly for the future. Next year needs to be a year of action,” states Hautamäki.
The Board’s term of office begins in January and lasts one calendar year. The new Board will be organised in its first meeting. Aalto University Student Union is the service and advocacy organisation of around 14 000 Aalto University students.
