The Elephant in the room

Yes, we know. The referendum didn’t exactly go as planned for us pro-Europeans, but we’ve picked ourselves up, brushed ourselves down and decided to get on with business. Have a look at our post-Brexit mission statement.
"We will always be European."

The Young European Movement was founded in 1972 - before the UK became a member of the EU. We intend to be around for a long time afterwards. We will continue to discuss European issues, spread European messages and strive for cooperation with the continent. So long as we uphold our values, defend our rights and preserve our democracy, we will always be European.

OUR TEAM

YEM UK is steered by a team of dedicated volunteers elected at our AGM. Say hello to the current board!

LIAM MCDONALD

President
In between studying maths and testing whisky (yes, it’s a real job), Liam coordinates the work of the National Board and is the public face of YEM UK.

ANNA WILSON

Communications Officer
From running the website to animating videos, Anna is in charge of our social media, graphics, public statements and online presence (when she’s not studying her degree in history and politics at Warwick).

Jo Roddy

Treasurer
After being bitten by the travel bug on one of YEM’s trips abroad, Jo became interested in Europe, its politics and its people. He now manages YEM’s membership system and finances.

Chris Stenseth

General Board Member
As a General Board Member, Chris is flexible with the tasks he carries out – one day he could be filling in a grant application, the next he could be ordering campaign materials. If help is needed, Chris is there!

Juuso Järviniemi

Local Branches Officer
Juuso studies International Relations at the University of Edinburgh. Before moving to Edinburgh, he was involved with the local sister organisation of YEM in Tampere, Finland. Juuso also writes for The New Federalist, the JEF newspaper.

Damian Allinson

Local Branches Officer
Damian is one of our Local Branch Officers, and also President of YEM London, having been a member for 2 years. He has a Masters in European Studies from the College of Europe, and now works in EU and Government consultancy in London.
