HYY reminds everyone about students' homelessness by participating in the events of the Night of the Homeless on 17 Oct

17.10.2011

The Night of the Homeless Citizens' Movement will arrange a national campaign with the theme the Unbearable Difficulty of Housing today on 17 Oct. By participating in the campaign, HYY wishes to remind everyone that students in the metropolitan area also suffer from homelessness. This autumn, the student housing situation is exceptionally difficult. Approximately 50 students had to resort to emergency accommodation arranged by the Student Unions of the University of Helsinki and Sibelius Academy and the Student Union of Metropolia University of Applied Sciences in cooperation with the City of Helsinki. Some of these students are still without homes.

HYY welcomes all interested to Hakaniemi Square from 5pm onwards to listen to speeches, participate in the sleeping bag demonstration of Finnish Youth Housing Association and follow other events of the night.
