Yesterday EU leaders celebrated the end of a historic Council meeting. 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.
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.
The European Youth Forum is proud to announce the launch of its second commitment to the Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth, “Power in Knowledge: Solution-Based Research to Tackle Emerging Challenges in European Youth Employment".
