Eurodesk wishes you a Happy New Year! 

2018 is a crucial year for the future of Europe. The EU will propose key legislative proposals on the next generation of EU programmes for 2021, including those that will come after Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps. We will push for an increased investment in youth mobility and youth information together with our main partners. The ErasmusX10 campaign will continue to unfold in 2018. Eurodesk will make sure all young people are informed about the opportunities offered by these programmes. We will continuously improve our online services towards young people and youth workers with a brand new website and an enhanced library of mobility opportunities. We will continue to work with the European Commission on the further development of the European Youth Portal. We will implement our new social media strategy. In 2018 we will also celebrate the fifth edition of the Time to Move Campaign that reached 135.000 young people through more than 800 events throughout Europe in its last edition. All the Eurodesk team wishes you successful initiatives to enhance youth mobility and youth participation!
