During the summer the tenant committee of Syynimaa organised a beach party where about 40 people enjoyed the summer day by playing beach games and BBQ food. The event was clearly a success because in August when they organised a picnic in Nallikari there were twice as much participants. The chairman of the committee Bilal Khawaja describes the atmosphere of the events as fun. He applied for the tenant committee because he wanted to get to know new people and different cultures by exploring different activities together. Upcoming events include for example a trip to Haaparanta by the tenant committee of Kaijonharju.
Every residential area has its own tenant committee. Events are only a small part of the activity and the main point is to hear out the tenants and thus improve the quality of living. You can read more about tenant committees from: https://www.psoas.fi/en/psoas/tenant-committees/
