Let's save Konepajan Bruno!

Sign the address and help Konepajan Bruno to stay in it’s current form as a urban culture oasis instead of being turned into a hardware store!

Pro lingua Latina in Jyväskylä

Latinan kielen säilyttäminen Jyväskylän yliopistossa Jyväskylän yliopisto on lakkauttamassa latinan oppiaineen kokonaan. Jos näin todella tapahtuu, katkeaa perinne, jota on vaikea palauttaa enää myöhemmin, ja yliopisto ottaa askeleen pois sivistysyliopiston ihanteesta. Latinan kielestä hyötyvät monet tahot, ja vastaavasti näiden tahojen toiminta vaarantuu jos latina poistuu. Latinan tarvitsijoita löytyy filosofian opiskelijoista historian tutkijoihin ja kuoroista yliopiston viestintään, eikä ta

The four finnish dolphins must not be transferred

Dolphins must not live in captivity, but for the dolphins who have lived in the Särkänniemi dolphinarium for decades a transfer anywhere may prove to be fatal. Veera and Delfi, who were 5-7 years old when they were first brought to Tampere, are now aged, and Leevi and Eevertti have a disease typical of dolphins living in captivity, haemochromatosis, which may cause problems in a transfer. If the dolphins are sold, it is also a real danger that the family that has lived together all these years w

Preservation of Italian language at Jyväskylä University

Italian kielen säilyttäminen Jyväskylän yliopistossa. Jyväskylän yliopisto aikoo luopua italian oppiaineesta kokonaan. Tällä hetkellä Jyväskylän yliopisto on ainoa yliopisto Helsingin pohjoispuolella, jossa on mahdollista opiskella italian kieltä aineopintotasolla, ja valmistua romaanisen filologian maisteriksi italia kieleen liittyvällä gradulla.    Jos näin tapahtuisi, yliopistotasoinen italian kielen ja kulttuurin opetus olisi rajoitettu vain Turun ja Helsingin yliopistoihin.

Say NO to environmental devastation that quarry will cause.

We strongly oppose plans for a quarry in Espoo, Finland. Esbogard Ltd. plans to excavaate a huge area, 73 hectares, for granite extraction and landfill. The project schedule spans generataions: it is likely to take more than a hundred years to complete. But the environment will be permanently ruined. The project area directly intersects an important ecological corridor for migratory wildlife. Additionally, it will force us to move from our family farm, where we have raised Icelandic horses for d
