Essi Lumme: The coronavirus pandemic can leave its mark on higher education sports for a long timePublished:

Essi Lumme: Students must not be left in the dark regarding the continuation of restrictionsPublished:
Higher education students are currently returning to their studies. Meanwhile, many students return from their summer vacation to their everyday routines, such as university sports. However, not all higher education students get to start their autumn studies on the campus. Due to COVID-19, different areas in Finland follow different restrictions, which also poses challenges in organising university sports.

During our studies, we try to find ways to expand our cross-disciplinary networks before hitting the workforce. We all create several new friendships during our studies.

It would be fantastic if we could increase the role that sports play in networking and maintaining friendships.

Markus Halonen: Spreading information is an important part of promoting physical activityPublished:
Making higher education culture more physically active is a complex goal to achieve, and in order to reach it, we should approach the target group from many different angles. It is, of course, important to remind people about the benefits of exercise and the disadvantages of physical inactivity, but we also need more detailed information when we want to transfer new learning into practice in increasing physical activity. In August 2020, the project Tikissä työelämään organised a series of three webinars to examine both the benefits of physical activity and also possible disadvantages from the point of view of e.g. brain health and the new physical activity recommendations.
Liisa Reinola: University students – an easily forgotten group of usersPublished:
Children and young people’s physical exercise is often discussed, and equal opportunities for them to be active: how certain sports are expensive, but how physical exercise is important for personal development, social relationships and even health. Once this case is somehow fixed, the discussion jumps ahead many decades and focuses on exercise opportunities for the elderly. It is a well-known fact that physical exercise does play a key role in supporting their health and ability to function. So, the opportunity for safe gym training, jogging paths close to home, and guided sports groups for seniors by the city sports services must be provided.

Jussi Ansala: Municipal elections and cycling – the holy trinity for commuters and students: bicycle, route and a wholly reliable lockPublished:
In June, the Board OLL, the Finnish Student Sports Federation, decided on the federation's goals for the 2021 municipal elections. The decisions are based on statements by member organisations. The first goal, or rather the solution, is this: the conditions for cycling must be improved and city bike networks expanded – cycling is a great form of everyday exercise for all residents of a municipality, including students. In this blog post, I will address the municipal election theme mainly on the basis of my personal experiences in the saddle.
Tuire Ranta-Meyer: The playing human has the courage to move in the higher educationPublished:
In this blog post, I discuss whether universities of applied sciences can have imaginative leaders and “masters of madness”, as in Little’s office. Could a creative idea that seems a little crazy today be a driving force for the development of tomorrow? Are there any aspects of higher education sports where students do not need to be full of athletic power in order to exercise on their own terms, take part in and enjoy physical activity one step – or, say, one wrist rotation at a time?
Sanna-Maria Ahl: Municipal elections – matters concerning youPublished:
Municipal elections, the lesser-known cousin of parliamentary elections. You've probably heard about them? Have you voted in them? Or haven’t you voted because you already went to the polls in those “real” elections?
