Young Conservative Group for Europe

YCGE is the youth wing of CGE. All members can take advantage of YCGE’s great range of events and activities, and for those under 30 membership costs just £15! We have an eclectic mix of members, including students, young professionals and other young people, and many continental Europeans who are working or studying in the UK.

YCGE proactively assists CGE in its aims, holds several events throughout the year, and campaigns on UK issues which matter to our members. Additionally, YCGE is a keen player on the continental European stage, and is a member of both the European Democrat Students (EDS), and the Nordic Conservative Student Union (NKSU), two of Europe’s most influential youth centre-right political organisations. YCGE members have plenty of opportunities to attend events, training and conferences all over the continent, and beyond, meeting top political names along the way.

Full membership of EDS was achieved during the organisation’s Winter University, held in Brussels in February 2011. CGE Patron Ian Taylor is a former EDS Chairman, and so we are proud that once again the United Kingdom has a representative at this important body, and that YCGE can continue this proud heritage.
