The Aalto University Student Union (AYY) has given special recognition to the AllWell? student wellbeing project. AllWell? was honoured for its concrete contribution to the welfare of students and for involving students in the development of programmes through a student survey. ‘The work of the AllWell? project was groundbreaking in advancing student well-being and study capacity. The AYY Hero badge gives meaningful recognition to the cohesive work we carry out with students,’ commented Vice President for Education Eero Eloranta.

AllWell? has demonstated how important the well-being of students really is to Aalto. The passion to improve student well-being, as well as genuine caring, which the AllWell? team exudes, is exactly what we need and what we are now celebrating. The Hero badge exists for precisely these kinds of projects.Thank you, AllWell?!’, commended Chair of the AYY, Noora Vänttinen.

AYY confers the Hero badge for projects and deeds, whether individually or forming a series, that impact the student union and the lives of its members. The Hero badge is one of the highest community honours granted by the AYY.
