It's time for the youth to set Europe's agenda

Get startet


Young people are the driving force which shapes tomorrow’s society. Therefore it is curcial to integrate and include the youth generations into the processes of society building, politics, decision finding and participative democracy. They should be given an active role in these fields! YEM doesn’t only address young individuals, but also whole youth organisations and it supplies a platform to cooperate for both, individuals and organisations to collaborate on an international level.


Europe faces various challenges and changes nowadays. These challenges are to be encountered by European solutions. Just like a family home is built up safer, quicker and better by working teams and different skilled crafts men, than it could ever be built by a single person, the crises and problems of our time are to be solved together. For this reason YEM aims to become a platform for young people and youth organisations on an international level, to cooperate and shape a better, deeper and sustainable Europe.


Everytime motivated people gather and join their forces, something incredible happens. The power of their vision increases and together they are capable to change the future. Are you enthusiastic and do you want to change things? Are you unsatisfied, but not willed to give up just like that? Do you have ideas and suggestions for a better Europe shaped from young people for young people and prepared to engage for them? Welcome on board!

Many Countries, one Vision – one Youth Movement, various/many benefits!

YEM – The Young European Movement stands in for that idea and brings live to that vision. As we believe that youth generations all troughout Europe can live together peacefully and prosper and thrive unified in diversity, despite of their origins and their backgrounds. Always committed to the fact that our strength lies within our diversity. The only precondition to that state of cooperation is, that we have mutual respect, appreciation and understanding for one another as a bridge to cross differences.

By giving young people the opportunity to meet like-minded people, connect with one another and develop a sense of European identity, we can make the youth of Europe a cohesive force to be reckoned with.“Anna Wilson, Co-Founder of YEM
