Active Club 2022

Do you need training and information about your new tasks? Do you want to deepen and update your skills in society activities?

Are you active in your society in 2022? The Student Union (OYY) organises training for the subject and hobby societies operating in OYY at the Active Club from 1st to 3rd of February 2022. Due to the covid-19 restrictions, the trainings are held remotely in the zoom.

In the Active club, you can learn new things and share your own ideas about society activities. The purpose of the Active Club is to develop and update your skills as an student active. Please note that part of the training will take place at the same time, so you can attend a maximum of 6 training sessions throughout the Active Club.
