Young Leaders' Meeting 2022

Registrations are now closed! 

This European Liberal Forum (ELF) seminar is set to take place in Copenhagen, Denmark, from 23 - 25 September 2022 and aims to touch an issue relevant to the young generation – youth unemployment.

The YLM 2022 is exclusively aimed at Presidents of LYMEC member organisations, as well as the Steering Committee of the IMS and will focus on the situation of the European youth after the pandemic. During the pandemic the youth was the hardest hit in terms of unemployment and limited possibilities. How has this been developed since the pandemic and what does 'young people with no job' mean for the EU as an economic actor in the world? These are the questions we want to raise.

Aside from that, this event also aims to address the challenges faced by young liberals all over Europe by bringing their leadership together on common concerns before sharing their takeaways in their local communities as multipliers.

This event is supported by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF) and the Danish Liberal Democracy Programme (DLDP).
