We call for Europe to help the democratic process in Libya

“All what is happening in Libya, where hardly but continuously a democratic stabilisation is being established, cannot leave Europe indifferent, since one of the pillars of its action is exactly the policy of interest towards the Neighbouring countries of North Africa”. This has been stated by Mr. Alessandro Perelli, Vice-President of ALDA and Coordinator of the working group on the Mediterranean area, together with Mr. Mohammed Salhi, member of the Governing Board of ALDA from Morocco.

European Solidarity Corps open to all young people aged 17-30!

Copyright: 2016, European Youth Portal

The European Solidarity Corps is the new initiative launched by the European Commission in December 2016 aiming at bringing young people together and providing them with the opportunity to contribute to society across the EU.

***
The European Solidarity Corps intends to build a more inclusive society, supporting vulnerable people and responding to societal challenges. It offers an inspiring and empowering experience for young people who want to help, learn and develop.

Participants of 17-30 years old have the chance to volunteer, take on a traineeship, apprenticeship or job for a period between 2 and 12 months, in a broad range of fields such as education, health, social integration, assistance in the provision of food, shelter construction, reception, support and integration of migrants and refugees, environmental protection or prevention of natural disasters. After completing a simple registration process, European Solidarity Corps participants will be selected and invited to join a wide range of projects, such as helping to prevent natural disasters or rebuild afterwards, assisting in centres for asylum seekers, or addressing different social issues in communities.

ALDA – the European Association for Local Democracy – calls on young people across Europe to apply and join the already 20 000 registered participants. The European Solidarity Corps is a key tool to promote active citizenship and participation in their communities. This measure will also enhances youngsters’ employability skills and equips them with relevant experience and knowledge.
