European Solidarity Corps programme (A8-0079/2019 - Michaela Šojdrová)

  Andrejs Mamikins (S&D). – Madam President, I believe that the Solidarity Corps has real potential to bring added European value to the social policies. It creates solidarity among young Europeans and allows for the personal growth of participants. It is particularly great that, since 2019, organisations from non-EU countries can participate in these projects. In the case of European Neighbourhood Policy countries, it becomes another element in the chain of contacts and people—to—people diplomacy. In addition to that, volunteering strengthens engagement and makes young people appreciate the non—material side of their work.

I supported this report and I wish volunteering could become a part of life for other groups of citizens who want to get engaged in the issues of public interest, dedicating some hours per week to a cause that they really care about.
