The European Commission invites everyone to help shape the future of the Erasmus+ programme by expressing their thoughts and ideas at the Erasmus+ Generation Online Meeting Point.
What is the Erasmus+ Generation Declaration?
The European Commission aims to collect concrete proposals from the Erasmus+ Generation on the future of the programme. The proposals will later be condensed into a Declaration which will be presented to European decision-makers in Brussels on 30 November. The Erasmus+ Generation Declaration will serve as the basis for building a stronger, more inclusive and better-tailored Erasmus+ Programme for the future generations of Europeans.
Who can take part?
All the participants and beneficiaries of Erasmus+ and its predecessor programmes: young people, students, adult learners, teachers, trainers, volunteers and youth workers, as well as organisations, including schools, universities, training institutions, businesses, youth organisations and sports clubs and federations.
How to take part?
The online discussions are already taking place, and on 15 October 2017 the drafting of the Erasmus+ Generation Declaration will begin. The discussions will focus on 6 key topics:
- Societal challenges (How can the programme better help tackle societal challenges?)
- Skills gap (How can the programme help foster the acquisition of relevant skills and competences for a fast-evolving society?)
- Civic engagement (How can the programme better support and promote civic engagement and common EU values?)
- Inclusion (How can the programme be more inclusive to all social groups?)
- Accessibility (How can access and participation in the programme be widened and simplified?)
- The global dimension of Erasmus+ (How can cooperation with the wider world be extended and improved?)
Discussions will be moderated by discussion leaders appointed by their National Agencies. All discussion leaders are former Erasmus+ participants who are passionate about the programme.
