With the LYMEC4EU Communications Meeting we are bringing together the talented liberals of our Communications team and Libertas Editorial Team for an in-person gathering. This event is not only an opportunity to shape LYMEC's Communications Strategy ahead of the 2024 EU Elections, but also a chance to receive training from experts on different fields of political communications, digital techniques and tools, editing of news and reporting political events on social media. 

By fostering cooperation among young liberals, best practice sharing and professional training, we aim to empower our teams, equip them with new skills and create a roadmap for effective communication in the political landscape.
