Announcement: The Students’ Municipal Elections Panel to be Organised in Joensuu on 18 May – Students Have an Important Role to Play in the Municipal Elections

The Student Union of the University of Eastern Finland (ISYY), the Student Union of the Karelia University of Applied Sciences (POKA), and the Student Union of Riveria (PYRO) are organising a joint municipal elections panel in Joensuu on 18 May starting at 14:00. The panel is organised with safety and hygiene in mind in the facilities of the Karelia University of Applied Sciences and will be streamed live on the YouTube channel of the City of Joensuu.

Representatives from all political parties, both large and small, have been invited to the panel. Questions presented in the panel have been gathered from the members of all three student unions earlier this spring.

The municipal elections panel offers a chance for students and young people to get to know the various political parties and their candidates. In addition, the political parties and their future council members may show how they take students and issues important to them into account in future municipal decision-making processes.

The panel and discussions will be held in Finnish.
