Are you interested in activities relating to the environment? Come and join us at the Youth Environment Space!
The Youth Environment Space provides the opportunity to get to know nice new people, find new hobbies, and obtain information on and perspectives into any environmental and climate-related questions you may have.

In 2018–2023, the Youth Environment Space was located in Laajasalo. At the moment, the Youth Environment Space is searching for new premises for its activities. During autumn 2023, we encourage young people interested in our activities to join us in planning the new Youth Environment Space. At the same time, we will be organizing environmental activities for young people around Helsinki. More information about our activities is available here.

Camping equipment loan centre Wempaimisto

We support young people, groups for young people and the operations of youth organisations by renting out the premises of the Youth Work Unit of Environmental Activities for young people’s independent activities. You can also come to the camping equipment loan centre Wempaimisto to borrow camping equipment free of charge with the free Youth Services membership card.

Summer activities on islands Vartiosaari and Mustikkamaa
