Join the Campaign “Life beyond EU Funding: Imagining a Different Role for Youth Organisations in Europe”
Inter Alia, along with a partnership of over 100 civil society organisations and networks across Europe, is carrying out a pan-European campaign “Life beyond EU Funding: Imagining a Different Role for Youth Organisations in Europe”.
EPTO has joined this campaign and we invite our members and partners to join too!
"Youth organisations are agents of change, not just service providers! This role is primarily earned through the efforts of the organisations themselves and their capacity to be resilient and faithful to their vision and mission. However, a more favourable environment, supportive of change and experimentation and, essentially, more forgiving to mistakes is also crucial.
We campaign across Europe arguing that operating funding to youth organisations needs to significantly increase. We request that operational funding reaches 5% of the overall Erasmus+ budget in the field of youth on a yearly basis from 1,88% that it stands currently. This can only be sustainable through a series of policy interventions in the system of allocation and the overall terms of operation of the youth sector on the EU level."
