Oct 22, 2021 | News

(22 October 2021) – Today, the Commission has adopted a framework to “increase the inclusiveness and diversity of the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programmes” for the period 2021-2027.

The measures deliver on the commitment by President von der Leyen’s Commission to substantially reinforce both programmes, not only by allowing many more people to learn or volunteer in another country, but in particular by reaching out to increasing numbers of people with fewer opportunities.

With today’s framework of inclusion measures, the Commission gives a “strong boost” to improve equity and inclusion in the European Education Area and lives up to the promise in the first principle of the European Pillar of Social Rights, which provides that everyone has the right to quality and inclusive education, training and lifelong learning.

The Commission will closely monitor the implementation of these inclusion measures at national level through the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps national agencies.
