My name is Emilie Jäntti, and I wish to be your candidate in the parliamentary election.
Activism and politics have been a big, and important, part of my life since I was very young. Since I was 13 years old, I’ve had the opportunity to have many different commissions of trust, out of which the first ones were in my lower secondary schools student-board as well as in my hometown’s youth parliament. This interest in politics was also what brought me into choosing political science as my major when I began my studies at Åbo Akademi.
Some of the most important political questions for me are educational politics, human rights and the right to participate in decision making from a young age.
Education is a keystone in our society, and every child should have the right to a high-quality education, which is driven by competent personnel. In order for us to have an educated and well-working society in the future we need to keep investing in our education system.

Children and youth
Our children and young people are the future, and we need to make sure that they are well, get a good education and grow up in a safe environment. In order for us to build a society which benefits everyone it is of high importance that children and young people's voices are heard in decision making.
