Обществено обсъждане на ЕК относно Европейския корпус на солидарността


6 February 2017 - 2 April 2017
Policy areas
Education and training, Youth, Employment and social affairs

Target group

The general public and all stakeholders, in particular

  • young people,
  • people working with young people, such as youth workers and educators,
  • organisations, such as NGOs and businesses, offering solidarity-related volunteering or occupational placements, and
  • public authorities

The Commission will consult national governments of EU countries and key stakeholders separately. Nevertheless, they are welcome to also contribute to this public consultation.


Objective of the consultation

The European Solidarity Corps will create opportunities for young people to support communities and people in need. These opportunities will include volunteering and solidarity-related jobs, traineeships and apprenticeships, both in the young people`s home countries and abroad.

The Commission is now consulting stakeholders and the general public to define key priorities and shape the implementation of the European Solidarity Corps.

This public consultation builds on an initial, targeted consultation of a selection of key stakeholders in late 2016. The questions of the targeted consultation were broad, focussing on the potential and the challenges of creating a European Solidarity Corps (*).

The consultation results will inform the Commission`s legislative proposal.

(*) The results of the initial targeted consultation are briefly summarised in the Communication "A European Solidarity Corps" [COM(2016) 942 final].
