Mr Nina Zivanovic
Act as the European-level umbrella organisation of socialist and social democratic youth organisations.
Act as the youth organisation of the Party of European Socialists and the S&D Group in the European Parliament.
Organise the exchange of information and practices between
the member organisations.
In 2015 YES congress many debates took place. A new generation has now
emerged in YES who has the opportunity and the willingness to make socialist
and progress a better option than the far right for young people and European
citizens in general. We need YES to be the cornerstone of socialist revival in
Europe. We are in a struggle against the right at three levels :
- in the institutions because they have a political majority
- in society because they have cultural hegemony
- in our own parties who have often stopped wanting to deeply transform
the system and base their strategy on an alliance with the right which
fosters the raise of the far right and of the radical left in Europe.
To be effective as socialists we need
- to be as good as lobbies in the institutions because that’s how you get
through in Europe
- to be active on the field by campaigns which allow us to connect with
young people and to make them join us.
We should obviously focus on youth related topics but also on the battles we see
- far right
- migration and asylum policy
- role of social democracy: where are we going, what is yes role within it / what
should our relationship with the left should be ?
- Climate conference and ecosocialism
In accordance with the YES Position Paper “Our future for Europe”, during the mandate 2013-2015 YES – Young European Socialists will focus on the following political priorities:
-Full (youth) employment
YES has to be a strong and progressive organisation that brings together young socialists and social democrats from all across Europe in order to:
- Strengthen socialist and social democratic (youth) movements in Europe.
- To lobby for our political priorities within the socialist movement as well as in the society.
- To empower, train and support our Member Organisations and activists.
- To facilitate exchange of ideas, methods and debate between MOs and young socialists across Europe.
