FNF Greece: Grassroots movement of liberal-minded youth to meet in Thessaloniki

Subheader 1More than sixty young Greeks will meet in Thessaloniki on Friday and Saturday to discuss and decide on a declaration for a brighter future for Greece. The “1st Liberal Youth Convention” coincides with the Young Leaders Meeting of the European Liberal Youth (LYMEC), which also takes place in this year’s European Youth Capital.

The reform-oriented young delegates will meet in the city hall of Thessaloniki, where Mayor Yannis Boutaris will inaugurate the congress. Afterwards, the President of LYMEC, Vedrana Gujić, will deliver a keynote speech and encourage the liberal-minded youth of Greece to continue their quest for a country that is more open towards reforms and the needs of the upcoming generation.

On Saturday, the delegates will draft and discuss the content in several working groups before the declaration will be put to a final vote by the plenary. The final declaration will be communicated to policy makers and may serve as a cornerstone for a successful cooperation among several reform-oriented grassroots efforts. The “1st Liberal Youth Convention” is facilitated by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF).
