ACT FOR YOUTH

WITH A EUROPEAN YOUTH PLAN.

We believe in youth and we believe that every child and young person should be given all the chances to succeed.

This is why we are calling for a European Youth Plan based on four pillars - youth guarantee, Erasmus for all, culture cheques and a child guarantee - to provide a better future for our youth and for the European Union.

Children

Introducing a European Child guarantee : Children are one of the most vulnerable groups in the face of economic hardship.
