European Liberal Youth (Abbreviated as LYMEC) is an international organisation of liberal youth movements – mostly the youth wings of members of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe Party.

LYMEC holds full members status to the European Youth Forum (YFJ). It is the official youth wing of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) Party and holds separate votes in the statutory bodies of the ALDE Party.

Even though the organisation is now called European Liberal Youth, it is still known as LYMEC, which is the abbreviation of the name when the organisation was formed in 1976. It was then known as Liberal and Radical Youth Movement of the European Communities.

The current bureau was elected in Vienna in April 2016 and consists of:

  • President: Denmark Sissel Kvist (Radikal Ungdom)
  • Vice President: Germany Svenja Hahn (Junge Liberale)
  • Treasurer: Netherlands Marijn de Pagter (Jongeren Organisatie Vrijheid en Democratie)
  • Communications Officer: Lithuania Edgaras Mascinskas (LYMEC Individual Member Section)
  • Digital Officer: Estonia Kevin Tammearu (Estonian Reform Party Youth)
  • Political Officer: Finland Lena Höglund (Svensk Ungdom)
  • Training Officer: Republic of Moldova Sergiu Boghean (Liberal Youth of Moldova))
  • The LYMEC office is run by the Secretary General. The position is currently held by Finland Danica Vihinen.
