The management team is in charge of setting up the activities and projects of United Europe and organizing the administration of the association.
James Candon joined United Europe beginning November 2020. In the two years prior to joining United Europe he had founded Idemo.club, a start-up geared to bringing young people together across borders and cultures through the medium of amateur sport, starting with Rugby. The global SARS-COV2 pandemic having forced Idemo into a deep freeze, James is delighted to have the opportunity to work with United Europe in bringing people together to celebrate their diversity and drive forward for a more competitive Europe.
