Motion: Application to associate willing non-EU European countries with Erasmus+
The European Youth Forum and our member organisations acknowledge the importance of the Erasmus+ programme. We firmly believe that the programme strengthens our European identity and our shared values.
Therefore, the General Assembly of the European Youth Forum approved a motion calling the European Union to support the re-association of Switzerland to the Erasmus+ programme and ensure that all European countries are granted access to the programme regardless of whether they are EU member states, provided they abide by the principles of democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
