Protection against coronavirus

The Finnish Student Health Service  and the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare have published instructions and information on coronavirus. FSHS does not treat infectious diseases, so if symptoms occur, you should contact your own health centre. Aalto University has also compiled guidelines on its website. Coronavirus is transmitted through contact and droplet infection. You can prevent possible infections by taking care of good hand hygiene, coughing into your sleeve or handkerchief, and keeping a distance of at least 2 metres from other people. AYY would like to remind everyone that the precautions are very important in order to slow down the spread of coronavirus. This situation is certainly new and challenging for everyone, but together we will overcome this.

Equality analysis of the songbook is completed - work on the new songbook is progressing

The equality analysis of Teekkarilauluja songbook brings up injustice in the singing culture. The recurring male perspective and the role of women only in connection with active males were found to be particularly problematic. The songbook also included violent, homophobic, racist and other discriminatory lyrics. The analysis provides a good starting point for the equality work in Aalto University Student Union and the work of the editorial board of the songbook. Work on the new songbook is progressing.
