16 November – The European Youth Plan Action Day!

Do you think youth deserves a better future? Do you agree austerity has limited the possibilities for young people? Then you should join our European Youth Plan Action Day. It is on 16 November 2016.

The Party of European Socialists and the Young European Socialists are calling all our members, partners, activists and supporters to join the Action Day and raise awareness about our European Youth Plan.

The plan contains policies and ideas of improving the wellbeing of the younger generation. We want to help out young Europeans find a career path in this difficult economic environment, we want to compensate them for the cuts in healthcare and education imposed by the conservatives; we want to grant them access to European culture.

Therefore we think we should extend the Youth Guarantee to cover people up to age 30, which will require more EU funding. We think the Erasmus + programme should also cover high school and vocational training if it is to become more progressive; we think that children should have access to free healthcare checks and quality meals in schools and we stand for free culture checks for young people.

Do you think these are good ideas? Join any of the events which will take place all over Europe on our European Youth Plan Action Day, where all European progressives will join forces for a Europe that works for young people!
