During 28th and 29th of January 2020, more than 600 participants had the opportunity to participate in the stakeholders event ‘Co-creating Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps’ and experience a mix of plenary and thematic breakout sessions focused on the main activities of Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps programmes, taking stock of the achievements so far and looking ahead with proposals for improvement and best practices. There were ample opportunities to provide input and fine-tuning of the support mechanisms and technical aspects of the implementation.
“It was a pleasure for me to be part of the ‘Co-creating Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps’ stakeholders event in Brussels. People from different profiles, among which were representatives of youth organizations, NAs, primary and high schools, universities, European Commission and European Parliament, were all gathered at one place with the same aim – co-creating these programs which have changed many lives. After the inspiring welcome ceremony we split into various break-out sessions. We had a chance to participate in 3 out of 31 sessions, where we had a possibility to hear news about the revised programs, but also to give our contribution.“
