Chairperson and President, The Left Youth of Finland
Liban is Chairperson and President of The Left Youth of Finland, Vasemmistonuoret/Gurutnuorat, a political youth and civic organization with 3,500 members committed to achieving a freer, more humane, and more equal world. Liban is proud to have run a youth-led campaign for the Finnish parliament in 2019 and, even though he didn’t win, is inspired by the voters who put their trust in him and by the great team work that made the campaign possible.
