Climate change is shaping our environment at great speed and at the same time is defining the future of world in which we live. Our youth could not alter the course of climate change when it was still possible, and this brings up important questions: Do we have the right to feel scared, angry or hope? Who is responsible for the future? What can we demand from others as well as from ourselves? What kind of future will our generation have?

Moritz Müller is a Finnish-German young artist whose work explores independence, complex emotions, and identity through portrait photography, music, and makeup.
Müller began his artistic journey in 2016, starting with make up. He soon expanded to self-portrait photography shortly after. Music on the other hand has always been a part of Müller's life, but it wasn't until he published his first songs in 2019 that he began considering music a part of his artistic career.

Bold experimentalism and novel breakthroughs propelled the emergence of a generation of young artists. Grand narratives gave way to expressing subjective emotions and experience. Jyväskylä Art Museum’s exhibition takes you on a time travel into the recent past of art from Central Finland. The extensive exhibition features a selection from the most interesting works in Jyväskylä Art Museum’s art collections from 1975–1997.
Students in upper secondary school can also access the City of Jyväskylä’s pupil and student support services. The service is staffed by psychologists and student welfare advisors, who are on hand to offer help and guidance to all students. The services are provided with the student’s consent, and they can also involve family and friends as well as teachers and other relevant professionals. The purpose of the service is to promote the wellbeing of individual students and the wider school community and to help create a safe and positive learning environment for all.
Psychiatric nurses working as part of the pupil and student support services team offer support to young people under the age of 18 and their families with mental health, drug, alcohol, gaming and gambling addiction issues. If you feel that you need help with any of these issues, you can get in touch with the nurses directly. Alternatively, contact can be initiated by a teacher or school nurse, however, staff must discuss this with you or a member of your family first.
