The number of students with disabilities taking part in Erasmus+ has been almost stagnating since 2007, while the number of young people experiencing Erasmus+ exchanges are increasing rapidly. The question of the inclusiveness of one of the flagship EU programmes has been raised many time over the past few years. Despite many efforts made, Erasmus+ is still considered by many as a rather elitist programme.
During a meeting organised at the European Parliament on the 5th of December hosted by MEP Damiano Zoffoli, the stakeholders involved agreed to create an alliance of organisations working on the topic of Inclusive Mobility.
The aims of this project are:
To gather partners from different fields with common interest around the topic of Inclusive Mobility who don’t work together yet;
To gather existing material, resources and research papers about the inclusion of students and young people with disabilities in Erasmus+;
To draft concrete recommendations on how to make the next Erasmus+ programme post-2020 more inclusive;
To create a long-lasting Alliance working on the topic of Inclusive Mobility.
