Alina Heywood


I am a half English, half Finnish 18 year old running for Turku City Council in the Green Party. At the moment, I am the second Vice Chairman of Turku Youth Council and I am also a board member of Turku Green Youth.

I was born in Turku, but I lived the first 10 years of my life in Manchester, England. For the last eight years, I have been living in Turku and studying at Turku International School. Last summer, I graduated from the International Baccalaureate Programme.

At the moment, I am taking a gap year and I plan to apply to study Politics in Finnish at the University of Turku.

My three main themes for these elections are:

  1. High-quality education with equal possibilities for everyone who lives in Turku
  2. A comprehensive public transport network
  3. The future of Turku and decision-making

If you have any questions or thoughts about my themes, message me (through social media or email) and let’s discuss them!
