Stakeholder meeting - Youth Chapter of the new Erasmus programme 2021-2027
 
The European Youth Forum and the European Parliament Youth Intergroup organise a stakeholder meeting to explore the proposal for the Youth Chapter of the new Erasmus programme for 2021-2027. We aim to build bridges between youth organisations, experts and decision makers to contribute to a stronger Youth Chapter of the next Erasmus programme. We will first give the floor to representatives of youth organisations, the European Commission, the Member States of the EU and experts for introductory statements. After this we will open the floor for an open roundtable discussion.

The event will be hosted by MEP Eider Gardiazabal Rubial, vice-chair of the Youth Intergroup. The meeting takes place on Thursday 28th of June at the European Parliament (room A1E1) from 10:00 to 12:00.
