Gininen Tulevaisuus (GT)

GT is applying for the second term of the representative council with the goal of being an interdisciplinary alliance and pursuing the interests of the entire campus and student community, regardless of the guild or field of study of an individual representative. Our goal is to be active in matters of lobbying, student union and culture, and instead of confrontation, to find the best possible solution through discussion. There is no group or meeting discipline in the union, meaning everyone is allowed to vote and speak as they see fit.

GT’s operations are characterized by good meeting behavior, which means that we prepare for meetings together in advance and find out about the issues to be discussed and the issues that are foreign to us. In addition, we are active, that is, we speak at meetings and participate as actively as possible in the work of committees and other working groups, of course, according to each rep’s own use of time. The third word describing our activities is community, we cherish the good spirit of the representatives and take care of it, even if the activities or things to discuss can be serious, it is nice and relaxed to work in both the council and GT. You should apply if you agree with the description and mission of the union. It doesn’t matter what your field of study is.

Contact person: Noora Rautio


A school of business and analytics -minded alliance on the whole campus’ issues.
