How close up do you know Valletta? Enter our #VallettaUpClose Facebook contest and win prizes! 2018 is the European Year of Cultural Heritage, a celebration of Europe's diverse identity. Here in Malta, traces of our heritage are everywhere: our capital city, in particular, is packed with cultural gems from the past and the present: architecture, sculptures, statues, monuments, the list is endless... But how much are we aware of these treasures of ours?
For the next long-term EU budget 2021-2027, the Commission is proposing a new programme for the European Solidarity Corps beyond 2020, with €1.26 billion to broaden the opportunities it offers. The new programme will allow at least 350,000 young Europeans to support communities in need between 2021 and 2027 through volunteering, traineeships and job placements. The proposal adopted today marks the consolidation of the Corps for the next budgetary period.
