In Vienna, 29-31 of January, LYMEC, represented by President Vedrana Gujic and Secretary General Igor Caldeira, joined the conference European Democracy Youth Summit organized by the International Republican Institute (IRI), joining the youth wings of ALDE Party, EPP and ECR.

Employment and Education at the heart of Generation Democracy

Young Liberals, Christian Democrats and Conservatives discussed the political disengagement of citizens, the need of adaptation by political parties, youth unemployment and extremism and populism. A reform of the educational system, a reduction of bureaucracy and taxes and more inclusive social policies are among the solutions found to economic and social imbalances, as well as more cooperation between national governments in the European context to combat terrorism.

LYMEC pushed for more market-oriented economic solutions and progressive common lines in tackling religious extremism.

Cooperation between moderate political families is essential to find common ground whenever possible to find solutions to the challenges our continent and our generation are facing.

The European Liberal Youth is thus thrilled to join the debate and thanks IRI for its invitation.
