The YES Forum in partnership with a number of other European and national civil society organisations such as Eurodiaconia and Don Bosco Youth Net have released a policy paper on Inclusive Youth and Education Programmes.
For the civil society organisations subscribing to this position paper, inclusion is an essential part of their daily work - be it as a welfare or youth association, Church or social and educational institution. We are committed to truly inclusive education programmes at the European level - and this calls for a comprehensive, diversity-friendly inclusion strategy for all European funding programmes that addresses multiple discrimination.
The position paper presents 9 recommendations and concrete practical suggestions for an inclusive implementation of the European youth and education programmes Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps. These recommendations are based on the gathered experience of implementing the programmes in the areas of youth work, adult education, vocational training as well as school education and voluntary services.
