Dear reader,

The European Liberal Youth is a vibrant community of young liberals from all over Europe. In the past years, we have been vocal about many issues impacting the everyday life of the European youth such as Climate change, Digitalisation, Human rights and Democracy. In these challenging times, more than ever, we must unite our forces to fight for an open and liberal Europe. It is a real honour to lead this fight as President of the organisation. Remember, together we can do more! Wish you a pleasant journey on our website!

Liberal regards,

Antoaneta Asenova-Bihlmayer

LYMEC President
