After the successful launch of the first Summit in 2017 and subsequent second event in 2018 the ALDE group in the European Committee of the Regions together with LYMEC and YDE is now launching a third edition of the event in 2019.
The purpose of the event is to provide an opportunity for young liberal democrat local and regional politicians to meet and share ideas and best practice amongst themselves, and afterwards to meet with experienced local and regional politicians in a joint meeting with ALDE-CoR. You can see the highlights from the 2nd summit which took place in 2018 here.
Young (18-35) local and regional politicians with an elected mandate and having a responsibility either in government or in opposition are encouraged to apply.
Apply by filling an online form. When applying please indicate your elected mandate, your current position of responsibility in government or opposition, the dates these began, and your policy interests under comments. Places are limited and selection will be carried out by ALDE-CoR based on experience, and with a view to ensuring geographical, policy and gender balance. The full agenda and confirmations will be sent in August. Deadline for applications is 19 July.
Travel arrangements and accommodation will be organized by ALDE-CoR.
