Joining the Youth Council is a great way to make a difference!

The Youth Council is for people that want to take part in decision-making. The Youth Council organises activities, excursions and events for young people in Uusikaupunki.

Youth Council Elections

The Uusikaupunki Youth Council is always elected for two terms at a time. The Youth Council elections are held in all secondary schools, sixth forms, and in the Uusikaupunki Unit of the Southwest Finland Vocational College. All young people aged 13-20 can stand in the Youth Council elections. The Youth Council is represented in most Uusikaupunki committees with the aim of ensuring that young people's opinions and voices are heard in municipal decision-making.
