Dear reader, The European Liberal Youth (LYMEC) is a vibrant community of young liberals from all over Europe. Since we have been founded our goal has been to actively work for a united liberal Europe but also to be present on issues impacting our continent and its citizens. Issues such as the war in Ukraine, Climate Change, Youth Unemployment and Digitalization. Our goal is a Europe that cooperates more not less. A Europe that stands for freedom, peace, and prosperity. Welcome to find out more on our website. Regards,
