This change will take place in 2022-2023. New county council will have 69 representatives chosen from these municipalities listed before, including Hyvinkää.

Our politics

Green party’s cornerstone in ambitious environmental politics. Best legacy to our children, is clean and well-being nature. Needs of a growing city are sometimes challenging nature’s values – we aim to protect our clean ground water, soils, swamps and groves. We want to preserve diversity and aim our city into carbon neutrality.

All build environment must be accessible, regardless of ones degree of mobility. Same applies to the entire society. Nobody should be excluded. We want to build an equal society in which everyone can participate.

Greens cherish diverse field of culture in our city as an hobby or even as profession. Let’s seek rich experiences from culture – not from shopping.

People should be heard more when decisions are made, also in between elections. Open discussion and dialogue about city’s future should impact us all.

More of our politics here (in Finnish), and city initiatives here (in Finnish).

Last season (2017-2021) we did:

  • Defended Sonninmäki area from a new road connection. Forest and it’s paths shoud be preserved for hiking, and skiing etc. This road to hospital and it’s plans are still active – and are expected to be presented in the council in late 2021 or early 2022.
  • Proposed international high school in Hyvinkää.
  • Resisted plans to build at Sveitsi’s nature and areas beside current nature reserve. Our group has expressed concerns about gound water accumulation as well as, changing the landscape, if massive buildings are build in the heart of the conservation area.
  • Appealed to another groups in the council and succesfully preserved full language program in Hyvinkää’s schools.
  • We have made initiative’s to city council such as: Offering more vegan food and oat dairy in schools, city support for local block and community celebrations and events, becoming anti corruption and anti bullying city and city council – and initiative for expanding and preserving natural biodiversity in the city.
  • Tried to save our two museums independence, by proposing to change expected savings from a staff costs to a exhibition expenses, but lost the vote. Museums are merging now.
  • We defended culture and arts education by proposing, and winning smaller cuts to art and music schools budget. Originally 50% of their annua budgets were on the line.
  • Made a bunch of propositions and changes in the city board and committees from a green perspective, minding the nature, cycling, sustainability and social wellfare.
