Nyyti news 3/2020
May full of compassion and equality
At the beginning of the month, Nyyti will publish a four-part series on the Tehdään hyvää (Let's do good) -projects. These are projects of students from Jyväskylä who are studying to be a teacher. The NyytiTalk on 7.5.2020 will delve into the links between racism and mental health; this time the discussion will be in English.
In our communication, we also highlight the impact of minority status on mental health, both from the perspective of sexual and gender minorities and accessibility. Experiences of how students can make an impact in the university community will be heard in NyytiCast, which will be published in the week beginning on 11 May (week 20).
Keep an eye on our social media channels and stay up to date on all this and more. More information can also be found on our website!
