Welcome to my page!


I am Matleena Käppi, a candidate for the Left alliance party in the municipal elections 2017. You can vote for me with the number 414 in Jyväskylä.

I work for human rights, the environment and culture. In Jyväskylä I want to promote good mental health care for everyone, asylum seekers’ rights and veganism. Other important values for me are equality, anti-corruption and openness to criticism.

I am a 21-year-old student of biology and music and a civil rights activist living in Jyväskylä. In the latest years I’ve worked with several organizations (for example Amnesty International, The Finnish Association for Nature Conservation and Vegan Challenge) ranging from human rights issues to environmental issues and pro-veganism. I am a vice chairman for both The Left Youth of Central Finland and Tuleva vasemmisto (The Future Left). Find more information about me on my Facebook page:


Here are my goals in a nutshell:

No-one is left behind – end to social exclusion!

Mental health services available for everyone in need – sufficient resources must be ensured!

Let’s make Jyväskylä an exemplary city as an ecological forerunner – Down with coal!
