Redrafting Europe: "how to construct and promote Liberalism for youth" was the theme of a seminar last Friday and Saturday in Helsinki, Finland. More than 30 participants from across Europe participated to discuss the main policy issues facing liberal youth organisations ahead of the upcoming European Parliament elections in 2014. In addition, several experts presented best practices and lessons learnt from past European election campaigns, the use of New Media as a communication tool, a self-defence course workshop on how to promote European liberal values in the face of challenges by populist politicians as well as how to engage activists in political activities.

The event was organised by the European Liberal Forum in cooperation with the European Liberal Youth, E2 and Svensk Ungdom (Finland) and MLS (Portugal).
