1st meeting of the Erasmus+ coalition: towards a stronger programme for education and youth!
On 26 April 2016 the Erasmus+ coalition first meeting took place in Brussels. Co-organised by the Lifelong Learning Platform and the European Youth Forum this coalition aims to contribute to policy debates related to the current Erasmus+ programme revision as well as the MFF Mid Term Review and the next Generation of EU programmes. Bringing together more than 20 European NGOs working in education, training and youth, the meeting was an occasion to raise our concerns regarding the important role played by civil society in building a fairer and more democratic Europe and in realizing the objectives of the Erasmus+ programme. Among other decisions, the group will work on a joint proposal to solve the “Brussels case” – a problematic situation for Brussels-based European NGOs who have to apply in Belgium to get support for their strategic partnerships (KA2).
