Creating a liberal and federal Europe

The European Liberal Youth, abbreviated as LYMEC, is a pan-European youth organisation seeking to promote liberal values throughout the EU as the youth organisation of the ALDE Party and its parliamentary group in the European Parliament (Renew Europe Group). The organisation is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission.

The European Liberal Youth (LYMEC) is a broad organization representing young liberals from all across Europe, which I have the honor of representing as president. We are vocal on issues such as freedom, our European future, fighting populism, sustainability, and digitization. We know that if we don’t stand up for our ideas, no one will. And if we don’t take a seat at the table, no one will offer it to us. Our goal is clear: a Europe that stands for freedom, peace, and prosperity.
