The European Liberal Youth (LYMEC) held its third online Digital Assembly on 3 July. This event was an opportunity to open up LYMEC’s work to its member organisations and increase transparency by offering more opportunities to meet the current LYMEC leadership and discuss the challenges young people face in today’s Europe.
The Assembly was divided into two parts. First, the LYMEC Bureau held itself accountable to LYMEC members by presenting what they had done and achieved since the last Congress, which took place in April, and what the plans for the coming months are. The delegations had the opportunity to ask questions, express their concerns and expectations with the current leadership. LYMEC also presented its brand new website, launched during the Assembly.
Second, the assembly continued its on-going task of renewing LYMEC’s Policy Book. This time, the focus was on Chapter 3, and areas such as culture, education and youth, and science and technology were addressed. The delegations took over the task of reviewing, and updating or archiving the existing resolutions, as well as submitting amendments when appropriate. The discussion was aimed at finding compromises, exchanging views on topics of interest and relevance for young people in Europe, but also laying the groundwork for the upcoming Autumn Congress.
LYMEC continues to work tirelessly for a more liberal and democratic Europe that takes young people into account. This is mainly achieved by participating and representing the view of Young Liberals at the upcoming Conference for the Future of Europe, and by gathering together active and dedicated young liberal minds from all over the EU in many interesting seminars, debates and actions to come.
LYMEC’s proposals for the Conference on the Future of Europe are available here.
