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!

CHRIS POWERS

President
Chris is in charge of the overall direction of YEM UK in the months ahead, growing the team, and ensuring everything is on track – as much as it can be! He studied History and then European Studies at the College of Europe and now lives and works in Cambridge, where he is waiting to be accepted to undertake a PhD on the History of British Youth and European Integration. He’s always happy to hear from you, so get in touch!

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.

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).

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!
