INTRODUCTION TO EUROPEERS
EuroPeers UK is a network of young people who know the benefits of studying, volunteering or participating in youth projects in other European countries. By sharing our personal experiences, we promote the Erasmus Plus programme and encourage other young people to take advantage of the life-changing opportunities this provides. We also facilitate discussion about European issues. Read some of our stories below – and get in touch with us to arrange a workshop at your school, college or youth group. EuroPeers UK is an initiative of Momentum World.
“Everyone deserves the opportunity to spend time in another country as part of their education. It is in our national interest that young people should see and understand the wider world, so they become future leaders, citizens, employees and entrepreneurs who can contribute to the prosperity, security and reputation of the UK”.
The EU Erasmus Plus programme funds all sorts of international education activities. Young people from every kind of background – not just university students – all over the UK, gain lifelong benefits from taking part. Erasmus Plus also has a strong social purpose to encourage equal opportunity, diversity, social mobility, employment and growth.
For most young people, participation would be impossible without the financial support of Erasmus Plus. But this is now under threat after Brexit – and there’s nothing to replace it.
So we’re campaigning to #keeperasmusplus for the good of our country and all young people.
Other countries buy in to Erasmus Plus without being EU members, so the UK can too. That’s our message.
