This 2015 edition of ALDE Group’s Summer Academy aims at explaining what the parliamentarian group represents and discussing solutions to get our continent growing and youth working. It will be an occasion to understand how the ALDE Group’s galaxy works for us: the parliamentarian group, its two European political parties (EDP and ALDE party), their political foundations (IED and ELF), their youth organisations, as well as the group at the Committee of the Regions.
We want to be given the tools to understand and confront the problem that most affect our generation: unemployment. For that youths will approach issues such as brain drain, mobility, free trade, entrepreneurship and apprenticeship. During these two days of intensive work, young Liberals and Democrats will gather in Brussels to work and network for a Europe that works for young people!
Democrat speakers will attend this event, amongst them: Marian Harkin, Jean Arthuis, Jean Marie Beaupuy, François Lafond.

The 1st Summer Academy was organised in 2007. This event brings together more than 100 liberal and democrat youths from all over Europe as well as from Macedonia, Russia, Ukraine, San Marino and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Academy provides a unique opportunity for the young people to come together, to listen to and discuss with Members of the European Parliament, representatives from EU Institutions and experts in the area related to the topic of the Academy.
