Zsofia Komaromi – AEGEE-Europe | European Students' Forum AEGEE (Association des Etats Généraux des Etudiants de l’Europe / European Students’ Forum) is a student organisation that promotes cooperation, communication and integration amongst young people in Europe. As a non-governmental, politically independent, and non-profit organisation AEGEE is open to students and young people from all faculties and disciplines – today it counts 13 000 members, active in close to 200 university cities in 40 European countries, making it the biggest interdisciplinary student association in Europe. Fri, 08 Dec 2017 19:38:05 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.5.12 Welcoming the European Youth Guarantee /welcoming-the-european-youth-guarantee/ Wed, 12 Dec 2012 17:36:41 +0000 /?p=2477 One week ago, on Wednesday Dec 5th, the EU Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, Mr László Andor, presented a new package of measures against unemployment. The job market is severely affected by the crisis, and the situation gets worse every month. We stand now at alarmingly high youth unemployment rates in Europe: an average 23% in the European Union, and in some countries like Spain and Greece, over 50%. It is true that youth unemployment was an endemic problem in many regions in Europe but the situation is derailed now, and this has moved the European Commission (EC) to finally include in the proposed measures the idea that has been advocated for by the European Youth Forum and other youth NGOs in Brussels for more than a year: to adapt to the European scale, the youth guarantee scheme that has worked quite well in some countries like Austria, Finland, Denmark and Sweden.

But what is exactly the European Youth Guarantee? It is the compromise to offer to young Europeans under 25 a traineeship or an opportunity to continue in education, within four months after they get unemployed. This tackles specifically the problem of social exclusion that long term unemployment can bring to people. The aim is to reverse the current trend of rising numbers of NEETs (stands for Not in Education, Employment or Training). The low rates of unemployment in the countries that already have set up this scheme are promising.

However, we in AEGEE see that this scheme raises some concerns that have to be taken into account, as it came up during the online discussion that Commissioner Mr. Andor held with young citizens on Friday. For instance: how can the European Commission enforce such a measure when they have no decision power on education policies? One of the possibilities is through the budget control systems put in place recently, especially for countries which have received economical support from EU.

Talking about money, the big question will be where to get all that money from (estimated costs around 4.000 – 6.000 euros per person, depending on the country). Ideally the Member States would be funding the scheme, but the European Commission pointed at the European Social Fund as an opportunity to get support. This Fund contains 76.000 million Euros for the period 2007-13. As the 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework is still not agreed upon, the final number for the next seven years is still on air, and we can just hope it is not reduced.

Another concern for AEGEE is the risk that these employments and internships will end up being a source of cheap labour force for companies, affecting salaries and having a backfire effect. The implementation of the Youth Guarantee will require a brave collaboration from companies, and it should be monitored to prevent the misuse of the scheme and the proliferation of unstable or low-waged jobs, unpaid traineeships, and other forms ways to undervalue the work of young people.

What we want the EU Member States to take into account: the cost of implementing the Youth Guarantee (estimated by the ILO – International Labour Organization – in 0.2% of European combined GDP) will be small compared with the costs of not tackling the problem once and for all. A recent study by the European Policy Centre estimated that achieving the EU’s 75% employment rate target by 2020 would generate up to €1.2 trillion in extra revenues for EU Member States (7% of GDP). We hope this are strong enough numbers to convince the European Council to adopt the EC Recommendation as soon as possible. Ideally it should be approved in the Council of Feb 28th, 2013 and should start to work in 2014. And it is already late.

There were other measures included in the package presented by the European Commission, like advances in the Quality Assurance for Internships, or the setting up of a European Alliance for Apprenticeships. But none of them can compare with the potential impact of the Youth Guarantee. This is what the youth sector had been demanding: strong, brave decisions. Now AEGEE calls for the Member States to accept the challenge and approve in the Council its implementation.

Global Youth Forum in Bali /global-youth-forum-in-bali-indonesia/ Wed, 12 Dec 2012 14:27:12 +0000 /?p=2466 The Bali Global Youth Forum was held in Indonesia on December 2012. Its aim was to review the implementation of the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development and prepare the follow up beyond 2014. As a result, recommended actions for the outcome report of the review were produced, together with recommendations to be included in the the post-2015 United Nations development agenda. Additionally, the Global youth Forum helped to generate a new consensus on putting youth rights at the heart of development policies.

AEGEE-Europe participated in the Global Youth Forum, represented by its President Luis Alvarado Martínez. AEGEE has dared to go beyond Europe once again, reaching the United Nations level for second time in 2012 after the presence at the Rio+20 Conference. The conference in Bali involved around 1000 youth delegates from all over the world, working on the five following topics: Education, Employment, Health, Family and Sexuality and Participation. The recommendations of the event – which AEGEE-Europe contributed actively to draft– will be adopted by the Secretary General of United Nations, Mr Ban Ki Moon, who will then pass them over to the UN Member States to be adopted and implemented.

AEGEE-Europe’s Reaction on the YES Europe Programme /aegee-europes-reaction-on-the-yes-europe-programme/ Wed, 28 Nov 2012 17:07:10 +0000 /?p=2261 On 27th November, the Committee on Culture and Education of the European Parliament adopted the new YES Europe programme for youth, education and sport. This merges all the EU programmes in the field of education, training and sport, as well as Erasmus in the framework of a single programme.

AEGEE-Europe welcomes the adoption of the “YES Europe” programme by the Committee on Culture and Education of the European Parliament, a proposition put forward by Member of the European Parliament Doris Pack, in response to the Erasmus for All proposal by the European Commission. The “YES Europe” proposal is still to be voted upon by the European Parliament in 2013.

AEGEE supports the fact that the “YES Europe” proposal – which stands for “Youth, Education, Sport Europe”, a title much more inclusive than “Erasmus For All” – is actually ensuring a separate budget line for youth, therefore stressing the importance of youth funded activities, and is finally mentioning the operational grants, which are needed to ensure the viability of the work of European youth organizations. Moreover, AEGEE acknowledges the fact that an effort has been made in order to modernise and simplify the administrative measures to be used in the programme, making it more youth friendly.

AEGEE which has been, during recents months, advocating in favor of a more youth-focused programme than Erasmus for All was proposing, is relieved to see that the European Parliament has taken into account some of the youth organisations’ requests. On the other hand, AEGEE still wishes for a better inclusion of youth in the management of the programme, and regrets that the participation of youth organisations and civil society in the management of the programme is not taken into consideration.

About AEGEE-Europe

European Students demand secure funding
for the Education and Youth programmes of 2014-2020

Tuesday 13 November 2012, 15.30-17.00
European Parliament Brussels, A5E1

 hosted by MEP NIKOS CHRYSOGELOS, GREENS/EFA

Speakers:

PETER MATJASIC, President of the European Youth Forum
KATHRIN RENNER, Vice President of AEGEE-Europe/European Students Forum
SIMONA PRONCKUTE, European Citizens Initiative Fraternite 2020
JUAN COLINO, Erasmus Student Network

AEGEE (European Students’ Forum)ESN (Erasmus Student Network) and ESU (European Student Union), Europe’s biggest student organisations, representing more than 11 million students and 30.000 volunteers from 47 countries, call upon the European Union decision-makers for adequate support to education and youth programmes in the budget negotiations under the Multiannual Financial Framework 2014-2010.

As representative student organisations, we fully support the European Commission proposal to increase funding for education, training, youth and sport programmes to 19 billion EUR over 7 years. We believe that it is the minimum amount required to achieve the objective of sustainable growth and jobs, as agreed in the EU2020 Strategy.

Mobility, through voluntary activities for young people (under support of Youth in Action) and students (under support of Erasmus and other programmes) benefits individuals and society at large. Young Europeans, who have an opportunity to be mobile, are:

  • More advanced in their personal and professional development: Education as a whole and mobility in particular enable personal growth and help individuals to develop their intercultural communication, language skills and team work ability;
  • More supportive for European Integration: European integration can only be achieved through personal ties, which have to be experienced first-hand. Living, studying, working and volunteering abroad are the best way to achieve this.
  • More skilled: Especially in the context of the current economic crisis and its consequences, including high youth unemployment and a lack of perspective for young people, we are convinced that education as a long term investment, including mobility, is a key factor in tackling the financial crisis. Learning mobility, despite being highly beneficial for individuals, has also a very positive impact on higher education providers, including teaching and administrative staff.

We stress the importance of maintaining a sufficient level of funding in the form of operational grants or administrative support for organisations active in both the youth and education sector in order to ensure the quality and resources for these organisations.

AEGEE, ESN and ESU strongly believe that the success of the current Lifelong Learning programme in the area of youth and learning mobility clearly show the benefits of allocating resources on the European level. While stressing the continued need of investment in higher education and youth also on a national, regional and local level, we strongly endorse the proposed budget increase for the European programme in education, training, youth and sport.

AEGEE-Europe brings youth policy into the agenda of its General Assembly /aegee-europe-brings-youth-policy-into-the-agenda-of-its-general-assembly/ Sat, 10 Nov 2012 11:39:29 +0000 /?p=2023 Between 31st October and 4th November, Budapest, Hungary hosted the General Assembly of AEGEE-Europe, the European Students’ Forum. Within the framework of this event, a wide variety of topics have been addressed from lively discussions on the Europe of tomorrow to how young people can contribute to it.

More than 800 students gathered together from more than 40 countries for the Autumn Agora Budapest, to discuss the future of the organisation and AEGEE’s role in contributing to the future of the whole continent. Besides European youth leaders and activists, politicians have also addressed the event and welcomed AEGEE’s new initiatives.

Through his video message, José Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission granted his support for AEGEE’s work in engaging young Europeans in policy-making and especially in tackling the issue of youth unemployment. Also in a video message, Martin Schulz, president of the European Parliament also expressed his support for AEGEE’s active citizenship initiative, the project aimed to promote the upcoming European Parliamentary elections and foster youth participation. Among the other external guest speakers were László Andor, EU Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, Tibor Navracsics, deputy prime minister of Hungary and Zsolt Rostoványi, rector of Corvinus University of Budapest.

The Autumn Agora Budapest has marked a new way for AEGEE in the process of reshaping its identity. Once again, EU policies and youth affairs are the topic of everyday conversation on the European level of the Association and the Board of Directors 2012/2013 is doing its very best to implement the wave of changes. Active citizenship and youth participation are becoming top priorities in times when the European institutions are drafting various proposals for the upcoming decade. “These discussions are of relevance because right now we are seeing how Europe is going into different negotiations with the next multiannual financial framework, and drafting of new policies that will affect how Europe develops until the year 2020. So it’s important that students state what they would like to see in 2020” – concludes Luis Alvarado Martinez, President of AEGEE-Europe.

Furthermore, several new projects from different field of actions have been presented and approved by the audience of the Agora. The Europe in Exchange project – aiming to further embed the principles of active citizenship within the Network, the Health4Youth project which fosters young people’s awareness on the healthy way of living. Last but not least, the EuroArab project of AEGEE-Europe has been officially launched in order to bring Arabic culture closer to European youth and to set the ground for later intercultural discourses.

AEGEE members are now looking forward to attending the next statutory events; the European Boards meeting in Valletta (February) and the next General Assembly in Mannheim (Agora Rhein-Neckar in April) to further develop the thematic focus of the Association and bring the European sphere one step closer to young people.

In Memoriam: Frank Biancheri /in-memoriam-frank-biancheri/ Fri, 09 Nov 2012 14:19:36 +0000 /?p=1985 It is a hard time for AEGEE now. Before the General Assembly in Budapest, a call changed our mood. We were informed that Frank Biancheri, founder of AEGEE-Europe, had passed away on October 29th.

The members of AEGEE have reacted instantly to the news, sharing their memories of meeting him, remembering how innovative his ideas were, how he had the ability to create debate around him, making new ideas flourish in the minds of those who had the opportunity to meet him. His belief that youth was a necessary actor in the building of Europe has inspired generations of active citizens in Europe, inside and outside AEGEE, and we will miss his questioning approach to everything.

During the opening ceremony of Autumn Agora Budapest, we dedicated a minute of silence to Frank’s memory, and have also gathered messages for him and his family, from people who have been inspired by him, and wished to express their feelings.

AEGEE-Europe’s Reaction to “ERASMUS FOR ALL: The EU Programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport” /aegee-europe-reaction-to-erasmus-for-all-the-eu-programme-for-education-training-youth-and-sport/ Wed, 17 Oct 2012 13:22:35 +0000 /?p=1853 AEGEE-Europe acknowledges the programme presented on November 23 by the European Commission that will substitute, among other programmes, the current “Youth in Action”. The new programme, called “Erasmus for All”, will include all the funding possibilities for youth, education, mobility, sport and culture, and include a significantly increased budget.

AEGEE-Europe welcomes the focus on education and vocational training, with the focus on individual mobility and a clear simplification of the mobility programs for students, with the predictable result to reduce bureaucracy and simplify the procedures.

However, AEGEE-Europe considers the proposal, as submitted, deeply unsatisfactory.

The programme leaves aside the non-formal education and the peer-to-peer learning that constitute one of the biggest added value during the educational process, and it mentions the interest for informal learning only sporadically.

Additionally, the objective and competence to encourage participation of young people in the democratic life in Europe, as stated in the Lisbon Treaty, is not reflected in the Commission’s proposal. The Commission’s proposal is focused on the needs of the labour market. The issue of active European citizenship and participation is not adequately addressed.

In order to achieve this, the programme should encourage the participation of young people in democratic life and recognise that youth-led, volunteer-based, democratic European youth organisations are an indispensable channel for supporting active citizenship and for developing young people’s skills and competences. Providing support to youth organizations would fulfil both the needs of the labour market and of an active and inclusive European society.

Another important aspect for AEGEE-Europe is the co-management of the programme: AEGEE-Europe strongly believes that the new programme should be an effective instrument for including young people as co-managers and partners at all levels of the programme, including youth organisations that represent them and their needs.

In conclusion, AEGEE-Europe appreciates the efforts of the European Commission for the programme “Erasmus for All”, but strongly underlines the importance of maintaining also “Youth in Action” as an independent programme focused on personal development, non-formal education and informal learning of young people, active European citizenship and support to the wide range of youth organisations that represent the diversity of youth in Europe. This independent programme should encourage the participation of all young people in democratic life; it should recognise that youth organisations are an indispensable channel for supporting active citizenship inEuropeand for developing young people’s skills and competences.

The future of Erasmus at a stake? /the-future-of-erasmus-at-a-stake/ Mon, 08 Oct 2012 14:39:49 +0000 /?p=1824 AEGEE-Europe has started a petition asking the relevant EU bodies to secure funding for the Erasmus programme. To view and sign the petition, click here.

October started with a worrying statement from the Chair of the Committee on Budgets of the European Parliament, Mr. Alain Lamassoure: “We have not foreseen in the 2012 budget enough credit payments … so the cohesion funds are at risk, also the European Social Fund, the Erasmus and life-long learning programmes, and even the research and innovation programmes”. [1]

These words, coming from inside the European Parliament’s Committee on Budgets, shocked the European society, and especially the students. Surprisingly, what called the attention of the media was mostly the mentioning of the Erasmus Programme, making it seem like the lack of funding for cohesion funds, science or the European Social Fund are not equally important. Nevertheless, for AEGEE-Europe, the European Students’ Forum, the impact of a lack of funding for the Lifelong Learning Programmes would be significant. For this reason, AEGEE has been following the issue during the past days.

After the statement of Mr. Lamassoure, most of the Ministers of Education of the member states hurried to reassure students and their families that their grants are secured. While this may be true for the first semester of the 2012/2013 academic year, there are serious doubts for those students who will travel abroad during the second semester. On Friday, 5th October, the European Commission published an article on the topic in its news section about Education and Training. The title already caused more worries instead of calming down the situation: Erasmus students: don’t panic (yet)! The article clearly implied that the European Commission is still trying to convince the European Parliament and the member states to provide satisfactory funding for these programmes for the second semester of the academic year.

We understand that Mr. Lamassoure’s statement was made in a context of ongoing negotiations for the 2013 budget, as well as difficulties in fulfilling all the compromises with an estimated deficit of 10 billion Euros for 2012. However, we feel that this message casts doubts on the future of this project, when we should be celebrating the positive impact on society of 25 years of the Erasmus programme – one of the most successful initiatives of the European Union -, and finding ways to make it more inclusive to reach more students.

For thousands of students all over Europe, the possibility to become an Erasmus student is now. They have already arranged everything to study abroad this year, and they are ready for an experience that will enrich both their curriculum and their personality. Moreover, Erasmus is the best tool of the European Union to create a truly European Identity, which in the face of rising nationalism is more needed than ever.The uncertainty around the funding might cause some of these young Europeans to cancel their participation. Therefore, we demand that the European Commission and the bodies responsible for the funding issue a clear message confirming that the grants for the Erasmus Programme are guaranteed not only for the whole 2012/2013 academic year, but for the upcoming years as well. Any reduction in the funding will increase inequality among young people, and could make Erasmus a privilege of wealthy students instead of a right for everyone. Only adequate funding can develop the programme into a real Erasmus for All, which after all is the name of the Commission’s proposal for the years 2014-2020. AEGEE demands an increase in the number of mobility grants and an ambitious future funding for these programmes to make sure that every year students can reinforce their European identity by studying abroad.

Youth opinion on the future of Europe: AEGEE-Europe launches “Europe on Track” project /youth-opinion-on-the-future-of-europe-aegee-europe-launches-europe-on-track-project/ Thu, 04 Oct 2012 14:59:36 +0000 /?p=1817 Where is Europe headed? What can young people expect from the Europe of tomorrow? These questions have been of great concern for many young Europeans recently. In order to find answers, AEGEE-Europe (European Students’ Forum) is launching the “Europe on Track” project in the fall of 2012. In the framework of this initiative, six young Europeans will travel the continent by train at the end of 2012, and in the course of one month, gather the answers to these, and further questions, through photography, videos and interviews.

The “Europe on Track” project was launched to advocate for a better future for European youth, and to capture young people’s vision of the Europe of the future by the end of 2020, as well as provide a snapshot of AEGEE and its members. The main topic of the project is “The Europe I want for the future”, involving young people around the continent in discussing the current situation and their own prospects. At a time when the idea of European integration is being questioned, and young people’s future prospects have become hazy, AEGEE considers it fundamental to give voice to the young generation, in order to take their opinion, their realities and their wishes into account.

“We will give six young people the opportunity to travel the whole European continent. They will be reporting about their experiences through social media and blogging, channels used by youth as impartial loudspeakers, which allow them to communicate with greater audiences, and which provide them with the possibility to communicate with an independence from traditional media. This will allow them to promote and spread the idea of a common European identity among youth.” says Pavel Zborník, European Institutions and Communications Director of AEGEE-Europe about “Europe on Track”. After being present at Rio+20, the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, AEGEE puts emphasis on sustainability in this project as well, as the six ambassadors will travel Europe in a “green” way, by train. By documenting every detail of their journey, they will later enable others to reach conclusions and find ways to remedy the situation, and through creative and innovative approaches they will promote the vision of young people through the social and other online media.

Applications for taking part in the project as an ambassador – travelling and reporting about young people’s opinions – are open until 20th October 2012. More information can be found on AEGEE-Europe’s official website (www.aegee.org) and the project’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/EuropeOnTrack).

This initiative is possible thanks to AEGEE-Europe’s partner, Interrail.
