HAPPY TUESDAY!

It's the last week of September and the autumn colours ('ruska' in Finnish) are spectacular at the moment. Now is the perfect time to explore nature! You can find a new nature trail introduction at the end of the ISYY -section of the newsletter every week, this week there is a brief introduction to the Noljakka nature trail and birdwatching tower. 

Although the autumn colours shine bright during the day, the evenings are getting darker so remember to wear reflectors and start using lights on your bicycle. This Friday 1.10 is the national reflector day, which works as a reminder to use one. When riding at dusk or in the dark, the Finnish law requires that a bicycle has a white or light yellow headlight and a red rear light. If you don't have these, you can be fined by the police. You can increase your visibility in the dark by wearing a reflector tag or a reflector vest. 

There is also a new event calendar at the end of the Events -section of this newsletter, check it out to find out all ISYY clubs' meetings and what's happening on campus and around the city during upcoming weeks! 

If you are unsure about how to join ISYY, order your student card or anything else related to your life and studies in Finland, please contact the ISYY team. We are here to help!

Kind regards,

This week's nature trail is Noljakka nature trail and bird observation tower - you can read more about it below!

 

Everyman's Rights - Freedom to roam

The nature in Finland is beautiful, so let's keep it that way - according to The Everyman's Rights (Jokamiehenoikeudet in Finnish), everyone has a right to roam the countryside, forage, fish with a line and rod, and enjoy the nature in Finland, but they should do it respectfully. So remember to leave no trace and respect the wildlife as you explore rural areas.

apply their unique skills and experience to real-world business challenges.

At the Pondi Discovery Event pitch challenge event, you pitch to company leaders yourself

It’s a refreshing world away from simply submitting your CV for a job. Instead, this is your chance to meet business leaders face to face and literally show a company how you and your ideas can help make their business, and even their industry, stronger. 

Students are encouraged to participate in the Genelec Mentor program, either through their thesis or final studies. If your area of study or personal interests relate to topic areas defined in the Pitch Challenge by Genelec, please apply! 

You are welcome to submit your solutions, concept, prototypes, products and product features, service concepts to the Discovery Event. Students, don’t worry about having work experience or a finished product. We want to see how you think and hear about your unique ideas and perspective on the things that interest you most. Tell us why you would be a good candidate for the Genelec Mentor program?

See the topics of interest and apply before 30 September on the website
