The Steering Committee wholeheartedly congratulates Zoe Ranganathan, current president of the National Union of Student in Australia, to her election into the Steering Committee for the rest of the 2021/2022 mandate.
The election caucus of GSF associate and consociate members has anonymously decided to appoint Zoe into the founding Steering Committee of the GSF where she will be leading the Equality portfolio alongside taking up responsibilities in the membership, and environmental justice clusters.
