Topic sub-headline

Education, Culture, Youth & Sport

It is clear that youth is the future of Europe – and therefore education must be one of the main topics on the European Union’s policy agenda. The equal access to education to provide each young European with the same chances for their future life is essential. Therefore programs like Erasmus+ deserve special recognition, enabling students to discover the European way of life and embracing the feeling of being European. Europe also shares rich cultural heritage and theatres, music, movies, dances and all other kinds of culture and also sports can act as elements to build teams and bridges between young citizens, becoming one big European community.

“Nous devons développer la citoyenneté européenne ! Les États membres de l’UE pourraient élaborer un programme d’éducation à la citoyenneté européenne afin de responsabiliser les jeunes citoyen.nes d’aujourd’hui et de demain. Cela passerait par des méthodes d’éducation non formelles, en coopération avec les institutions européennes et la société civile”

Europe should set up cultural conventions and scholarships to enable students to enjoy culture free of charge and more easily and, for university students, part-time work opportunities designed to reconcile study and work and guarantee a fair salary, with the aim of combating the exploitation to which student workers are often subjected and tax evasion” (Lecco)
