We, a partnership of over 60 civil society organizations across Europe, have just launched our pan-European campaign “Life beyond EU Funding: Imagining a Different Role for Youth Organizations in Europe”. In achieving a more sustainable environment for youth organizations across Europe, WE WANT YOU ON BOARD!
Youth organizations are agents of change, not just service providers! This role is primarily earned through the efforts of the organizations themselves and their capacity to be resilient and faithful to their vision and mission. However, a more favorable 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 organizations 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. 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.
