Physical activity fixes the corona-induced wellbeing deficiencyPublished:
Distance learning, forced by corona constraints, easily exposes the student to difficulties in concentration, body aches and loneliness. Even before the corona, students sat for nearly 11 hours a day. In light of these facts, higher education sports are a necessary pillar of student and staff well-being now in the final stages of the pandemic as well as when studies move back to campuses.

OLL: Physical activity must be taken into account in the education policy reportPublished:
Last week, we issued an opinion on the government's education policy report. In it, we emphasize the promotion of students' physical activity.
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.

Effects of the coronavirus pandemic on Finnish higher education sportsPublished:
In the late spring of 2020, the National Sports Council commissioned a report on the situation in the sports sector. The report completely forgot the Finnish higher education sports services.

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?

#getoffyourarse, #perseetpenkistä and #studentsonthemoveNOW!Published:
The average student sits for approximately 11 hours per day. These extreme numbers are influenced by the higher education environment which makes students passive, forcing them to sit in lecture after lecture without refreshing breaks that are important for their health. Here at the Finnish Student Sports Federation, we demand that the Studies on the Move programme should include the entire higher education sector in the coming government term.
