A Europe that Works for Young People (LYMEC)



A Europe that Works  for Young People


July 1-2 European Parliament For more information, please visit the website of LYMEC. Description from LYMEC: This 2015 edition of ALDE Group’s Summer Academy aims at explaining what our parliamentarian group represents and discussing solutions to get our continent growing and youth working. It will be an occasion to understand how the ALDE Group’s galaxy works for us: our parliamentarian group, its two European political parties, their political foundations, their youth organisations, as well as our group at the Committee of the Regions. We want to be given the tools to understand and confront the problem that most affect our generation: unemployment. For that we will approach issues such as brain drain, mobility, free trade, entrepreneurship and apprenticeship. During these two days of intensive work, young Liberals and Democrats will gather in Brussels to work and network for a Europe that works for young people!
