Proud to Promote Good Life
The principles laid down in the current Youth Act direct Youth Centre activities on a daily basis. The operational premise is founded in community, solidarity, equality, a healthy lifestyle, multiculturalism and internationalism and a respect for environment and life. Youth Centres join the Finnish Preventiimi group in nationwide efforts to prevent youth substance abuse prevention.
Youth Centres ensure that their activities support sustainable development in many ways: by choosing organic and local produce, environmentally-friendly subcontractors, and long-lasting, recyclable materials. All refuse is sorted and recycled and energy consumption is monitored closely. Natural gas and other more environmentally-friendly forms of energy are utilized whenever possible.
