The SYL Board for 2022 Elected

The General Assembly of the National Union of University Students in Finland (SYL), which represents the approximately 130,000 students at Finnish universities, elected a new Board for 2022. The General Assembly also made decisions on next year’s Plan of Work and SYL’s finances.

The new SYL President is Konstantin Kouzmitchev, AYY, aged 24.

As well as the President, the General Assembly also elected six Board Members:

  • Katariina Henttonen, LYY
  • Tuomas Karvonen, TREY
  • Elina Kuula, LYY
  • Suvituuli Lundmark, TYY
  • Tiina Pajukari, AYY
  • Jenna Rautionaho, TYY

“With this Board, we are in a great position to start planning and carrying out SYL’s parliamentary election lobbying next year,” the new President Konstantin Kouzmitchev says.

The General Assembly published a resolution demanding investment into education and students. “Investing in higher education and students supports the fundamental values of Finnish society. If we really want to one day be able to honestly say Finland is a model country for education, we must make the value choices in politics that will make this possible,” Kouzmitchev states.

SYL’s General Assembly was held at Hotel Korpilampi in Espoo on Friday and Saturday 19–20 November.
