European Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management Christos Stylianides urged young people to embrace the new initiative of the EU called European Solidarity Corps, as this would be the best answer to those who doubt the EU, he said.
Stylianides was addressing the launching event of the EU Solidarity Corps, in Nicosia, organized by the Youth Board of Cyprus, the organization that implements the new EU initiative in Cyprus.
“This is an excellent initiative that deepens the relationship of the European citizens with the European institutions but also emits and transfers the European spirit, the European moral framework beyond the European continent” Stylianides noted.
Under the next Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027, the EU Solidarity Corps will receive €1.26 billion. The Commission projects that the 2021-2027 programme will offer opportunities to 350.000 persons between the ages of 18 and 30 years, according to the Commissioner.
“The more we embrace it, especially the young people give the best answer to those who seek to doubt the European idea” Stylianides stressed.
