What is Youth Council?
The youth council supervises the interests of the young and addresses issues important to the young. Elections take place at 2-year intervals. The youth council representatives are around 13–20 years old.
The repreentatives of the youth council have the right to attend and the right of discussion at the City of Vantaa committees, the city executive board, and the city council. The council operations are not politically aligned. The youth council assembles every month, submits initiatives to the city executive board, gives statements, participates in various working groups, and arranges events targeted at the young. It also cooperates with schools’ student bodies to improve school conditions.
In the youth council, you will find friends all around the Vantaa and you can influence in Vantaa-related matters.
