We strive for a more active Student Union at Åbo Akademi University. We want a student union that takes a stand and represents the students not only in matters related to the university, but also in matters related to the community as a whole. Åbo Gröna Vänster is both an association for students at ÅAU and the local Swedish-speaking association of the Left Alliance in Turku.
We have actively participated in student politics and have initiated several projects. ÅGV has initiated the investigation into the role and function of the subject councils (ämnesrådslag), the project to make Åbo Akademi a Fair Trade University and the Student Union’s stand against the parking hall project underneath the market square in Turku.
