Wings are a part of Students Union and their goal is to make the Student Union a better place for everyone. In the Wings you have a freedom to create new free time activities for students and to take care of students’ interests.
The Wings are based on four different themes: development cooperation, environment, equality, and internationality.
Development Cooperation Wing works with TYY’s development cooperation projects. Wings members attend and organise different kinds of development cooperation themed events.
Environmental Wing promotes environmentally friendly procedures among the students. The Wing organises environmental training, communicates about environmental issues and organises events. The Wing is also responsible for realising TYY's environmental programme and for planning its implementation at all levels.
Equality Wing promotes equality and accessibility in the university. Wing organises events and trainings and communicates about accessibility issues.
International Wing promotes actively internationalisation, tolerance, and multiculturalism on campuses. Wing’s most important task is to organise events that bring together students from versatile backgrounds.
We are looking for regular members for the autumn semester. We expect the applicants to have motivation and enthusiasm for the task and ability to work in a group. Interest in wing’s theme or previous experience in organisations is a benefit but not a must. You can apply for several Wings but become selected only in one Wing. You can apply for the autumn semester 2018 or the academic year 2018–2019. We expect commitment for at least the autumn semester.
Application period starts 26 April and ends 13 May at 23:59.
Applications are sent via TYY website form. TYY Executive Board will decide about Wing members in their meeting.
TYY emphasises the importance of transparency and equality. We hope to get numerous applications from candidates with diverse backgrounds.
