European Youth Forum stands by Ukrainian youth

Member organisations discussed the impact of the crisis on Ukraine on young people in particular. The EYF want to see the rights of young people better protected when it comes to education, information, welfare, protection, but also self-organising and freedom of movement.

In terms of concrete action, the European Youth Forum is calling on the EU to pave the way for youth projects to be set up in Eastern partnership countries under the Erasmus+ programme.
