A new opening: the European Solidarity Corps

Budapest, 11-12 December 2017

The event focused on the European Solidarity Corps programme and aimed at informing local citizens how to get involved in the ESC programme. The programme was divided into a plenary session and later working groups on (1) solidarity and (2) volunteering both on local and European levels. Participants put everything in action as they were visiting and volunteering at the Santa Claus Factory, a well-known solidarity project.


The position of the European Economic and Social Committee served as a background document to the event.

Participants also agreed on a final document with suggestions related to the European Solidarity Corps initiative.
