Despite the pandemic, institutional clocks keep on ticking; in 2020, the Erasmus+ Programme for 2014-2020 came to its conclusion, replaced by a new programme, launched on the 25th of March 2021 by the European Commission, strong of a larger budget. On the 15th of April 2021, the European Solidarity Corps was launched for 2021-2027, with a budget of €1.009 billion and prospected opportunities for at least 270.000 young people.
Both initiatives share three priorities: social inclusion, climate action, and digital transformation; stakes that can align with rising issues the Youth will face in a pandemic and post-pandemic context.
Amid a contrasting environment, civil society organizations (CSOs) must turn the pandemic into opportunities, and get back on track for the chapter to come.
With PRISMA's Guide to Social Impact, Prisma European Network provides CSOs with concrete guidelines on how to be socially impactful.
