In his New Year's speech, Mayor Timo Koivisto reflects on the past corona year, discusses the city's growth in exceptional circumstances and, above all, looks forward to the future with confidence.

In the video, in addition to the mayor, greetings to the people of Jyväskylä are sent by representatives of entrepreneurs, top athletes, veterans' organisations, students, associations and youth councils. The truth about the course of everyday life is naturally heard in the video from the children's mouths.

City of Jyväskylä didn’t organize the traditional New Year's celebrations in the Church Park this year, which is why the mayor's speech is seen as a video format.
