The European Year of Youth 2022 Legacy (debate)

  Monica Semedo (Renew). – Madam President, 2022 is the Year of European Youth, the year of a generation that went through so many crises recently. I expected the Commission to be more ambitious, to reach those who are less interested in politics.

We, as Renew, organised Renew4Youth – an event that brought together 145 European students, young European students who had fruitful exchanges. They came from the EU but also beyond. This event changed their vision of Europe.

Next year will be the European Year of Skills, and I am proud to be the rapporteur on quality traineeships. Traineeships should be paid. They should occur in better working conditions and trainees should have a real learning experience.

So I say to you colleagues, this is not something we do for ourselves. This is something we do for young Europeans, for the next generation EU. So let’s cooperate on that report, because they deserve it.
