Investment in youth

EU leaders must put their money where their mouth is and make youth a priority.

Even though young people are now the group at highest risk of poverty and social exclusion, the proportion of the EU budget used directly for youth remains low. The 2018 budget of the European Union and the post 2020 Multiannual Financial Framework must provide all young people with quality opportunities. It is crucial that the budget for key programmes, such as Erasmus+, should be increased and that investment in youth should be mainstreamed across all policy areas.

After the second longest negotiations ever in the history of the EU, Member States were able to find an agreement on both Next Generation EU - the new EU funding instrument to support the post COVID-19 recovery, and the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) 2021-27, the EU’s seven-year budget.

The European Youth Blueprint To Recovery

We, the young generation, might not be the most hit by the COVID-19 health crisis, but its consequences will form our disadvantage for decades to come, if no measures are taken. Since the beginning of the crisis, the European Youth Forum has worked to ensure that no young person was left behind and that youth organisations were supported in their solidarity actions. With this European Youth Blueprint to Recovery, we present a series of policy recommendations aiming at influencing the institutional response to the crisis.
