I’m an education  policy represantive, what should I do now?

You want to improve education, but how can it be achieved? In this training we will use practical examples to show how an student organization can succeed in improving the quality of education!

Responsibilities of the board member (OYY Board 2020)

What is the Finnish Associations Act and what other laws and documents guide the activities of associations? What are the responsibilities and duties of the board of an association? What about the obligations of a single member of the board? What is the difference between a meeting of the association and a board meeting? Come and hear information about the basics of associations and how they work. The training is aimed especially for people new to associations and organisations, but it does not hurt to revise this basic info even if you are a seasoned veteran. Note that this training includes partly the same content as “Chairpersons and secretaries as engines of associations” training. 

Consistent visual communication (Ville Paananen)

Do you feel your society’s visual look starts over each year? In the workshop, we develop a brand guide for your society, which functions as the backbone for your visual communication. The event is best suited for the person responsible for visual communication. We go through fonts, logos, colors, and more. Bring your own or borrowed laptop!

Basics of organization financial management (Jarkko Impola)

Welcome to OYY organization training that is kept in January 27.1. 18:00-19:00 at TellUs Stage!  The training deals with organization economic affairs and basics of accounting. Goal is to give you as an organization active a good base for dealing with monetary issues in your guild or hobby organization. The training contains for example following themes: Basics of organization- and accounting legislation considering organization monetary affairs, Treasurer’s central duties throughout the year (e.g. monetary traffic, accounting, making bills), Treasurer’s role as a part of organization board (e.g. guiding and supervising use of funds) and the Basics of double-entry bookkeeping system (Debet and Credit, paper and electrical). The training is directed especially to new treasurers and representatives of economic affairs of organizations working under OYY, but it also contains useful information for chairmen and other members of boards that are interested in organization economics.

Chairpersons and secretaries as engines of associations (Eetu Leinonen & Tia Rahkila)

What does good adminstration mean in practice? What are the important documents of the organization, the basics of the association law and what should be taken into account in meeting technology? What does a good association chair do? What is the role and responsibilities of the Chairperson, what about the Secretary? At the end of education there is the possibility of networking. Note that this training includes partly the same content as “responsibilities of the board member” training. 

Managing an non-profit organisation and its active members (Kauko Keskisärkkä)

Is managing an non-profit organisation rocket science? How to organise and motivate the board and volunteers to action when making commitment in the long term is more and more challenging as the competition with other spare time activities is heating up.

Sustainable events (Jonna Hyttinen)

The theme of this active club is sustainable development. We will go through topics like how to take sustainable development into consideration in organizing events and how organizations can act more sustainably in their day to day life. 

Safer events (Emi Maeda – KUPLA project)

What is event safety and what does it include? What kind of safety-related things should be taken into consideration in student events of different sizes? This training discusses the most common safety aspects of student events. The training is suitable for event organizers of all levels and for those who want to develop student events safer for all participants.

Basics of event communication (Emi Maeda – KUPLA project)

Does the party or bingo night exist, if nobody hears about them? Even the most brilliant event concept won’t help you, if you do not communicate about it with clarity and coordination. This training is about the basics of event communication and the meaning of communication in event organizing. The training aims to give the participants tools and ideas to develop their own student organisation’s event communication.

Inclusivity in event organizing (Emi Maeda – KUPLA project)

Inclusivity means including people and letting people in. How does the principle of inclusivity show in event organizing and how can you increase inclusivity in your student community’s events? How does the student community benefit from inclusive event culture? This training offers means and ideas for event organizers who think that student culture belongs to everyone.

KUPLA’s event concept workshop (Emi Maeda – KUPLA project)

Are you looking for ideas to make your student organisation’s range of events more versatile or diverse? Are you frustrated, when the majority of the members ask for alcohol-free events but only an minority actually shows up? Can you have events that are intoxicant-free and fun? In KUPLA’s event concept workshop we will brainstorm, evaluate and process further new event concepts.
