Going on #Erasmus? A piece of cake!
Over 9 million people have benefited from Erasmus+ in the last 30 years. The current budget is €14.7 billion (1.3% of the total #EUbudget).
Last week, we presented scenarios for our future budget:
1] With €30 billion, 2x as many young people could take part in Erasmus+...
2] With €90 billion, 1 in 3 young people could participate in Erasmus +
Tell us: what slice of the cake should be dedicated to the mobility of young people?
