»Lymec - the European Liberal Youth - was established in 1976 in The Hague (The Netherlands) as the 'Liberal and Radical Youth Movement of the European Community'. Lymec supports the development of political and educational understanding of young people throughout Europe. Moreover, it plays a political role within Europe by acting as the youth organisation of the European Liberal Democrat and Reform Party (ELDR) and its parliamentary group in the European Parliament (ALDE, Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe). With 59 member organisations in 37 countries and around 210,000 members, Lymec aims to create a liberal and federal Europe, promote tolerance between cultures and individuals and increase the level of political awareness and involvement of young people in politics. Lymec's annual Congress gathers young people from all over Europe and is the highest decision-making body of the organization where its members come to discuss policies and determine future actions of the organisations. Lymec's Executive Committee meetings, on the other hand, take place twice a year and deal mostly with organisational matters. LYMEC also organizes many seminars throughout the year on various topics, such as human rights, migration policies, agriculture, regionalism, environment and liberalism. Lymec offers memberships not only to organizations, but also to individuals who want play a part in Europe's construction.«
