The European Union is faced with one of the biggest challenges in recent years: hundreds of people fleeing from war and poverty are risking their lives to get to Europe in search of safety and a better life. Migration crisis can be identified not only as a defining challenge, but also as an opportunity that can enrich European societies and tackle some of the economic problems that plagued the continent for the past few decades.
As European leaders struggle to unite and find a common solution to the problem the European Liberal Youth takes action to raise awareness about migration challenges and promote liberal solutions to the problem.
LYMEC stands against “Fortress Europe” as migration is a historical and natural phenomenon, and it is also a constituting character of European culture. To secure the free movement of people, the social rights should be transferable in the member states.
In the coming months we will raise awareness about the issue, talk to politicians and promote our liberal solutions to the issue.
SETTING THE AGENDA FOR EUROPE is a political LYMEC campaign raising awareness about issues that are important to youth, such as migration challenges, youth unemployment, youth participation and climate change. The main aim of the campaign is to put pressure on European leaders and to promote a liberal youth vision for Europe. Let’s influence the direction for the future of Europe!
