EUCIS-LLL and the European Youth Forum co-organise the third Stakeholders´ Forum with DG EAC in Brussels on 28-29 October 2010.
The third edition of the Stakeholders´ Forum on EU cooperation in education and training will take place on 28-29 October in Brussels. This Forum is different from the former two Fora with a broader scope including lifelong learning but also youth and international cooperation. Indeed, it is meant to consult European stakeholders on the future of the Youth in Action, Erasmus Mundus and Lifelong Learning Programmes. It will also be an opportunity to discuss the impact of the "Youth on the Move" initiative on the programmes.
EUCIS-LLL has already published a position paper on the future of the LLP in which it mentions some concrete suggestions to improve the next generation of programmes. In this paper, EUCIS-LLL asked the Member States to invest more in the Lifelong Learning Programme and to the European Commission to ensure an overall simplification of administrative procedures. EUCIS-LLL is looking forward to cooperate with other stakeholders´ to raise awareness on the need to have strong European programmes as well as "civil-society friendly" ones. The Forum will represent a great opportunity for European stakeholders to work together to make concrete proposals to the European Commission on the future programmes.
