Dear leaders of the EU member states!
Don’t forget the future of Europe.
Especially rural youth and young farmers in Europe are still facing a big disadvantage due to their background. Offer them the same opportunities!
We must not leave young people in Europe behind. Rural Youth Europe together with the European Youth Forum urges the EU Member States to invest an extra €3 per month per young person living in the EU over the next 7 years, in addition to what is already on the table. That would allow to triple the Erasmus+ programme, and increase the funding for Youth Guarantee as part of larger Youth Employment funding under the European Social Fund Plus.
Where is the ambition that matches what we were promised?
Day 3️⃣ of the International Congress of Rural Youth 🌾 🇷🇺
Highlights from our day trip to Mamadysh, Tatarstan for the SunnyFest Sleigh Festival 🛷❄️
After exploring the festival and cheering on the sleigh teams, we visited local folk groups where we tasted traditional treats, learnt about typical dress & practices and did some dancing 💃🏻 we also visited a dairy farm which milks 5,000 cows 🐮 and took part in village games, snow tubing, ice skating, snow mobile rides & horse sleigh rides before enjoying a traditional meal with local entertainment 🎉
A fantastic day immersing ourselves in local rural culture ❤️
