Aalto University Student Union’s candidate Frans Cederlöf has been elected to the Board of the National Union of University Students in Finland for the year of 2020. The general assembly elected the Board for the next year on Saturday.
“I am extremely excited about the coming year as a member of the SYL Board. Next year, we need to focus particularly on good relations with our partners. It is important for SYL to contribute to the involvement of students in the overall reform of social security and to improving the position of international students, for example,” says Cederlöf.
For the past two years, Cederlöf has served as Vice Chair of Svenska Studieförbundet SSF, the umbrella organisation for Swedish-speaking organisations in Finland. Cederlöf is currently serving in Finlands Svenska Skolungdomsförbundet FSS. Previously he has also worked in the European Youth Parliament.
