The other day I found an interesting facebook event related to the difficulties in wich the current economic crisis is putting the Erasmus program. This is a European Citizens’ Initiative (a legislative proposal that comes from the people) to ask about the maintenance of such scholarships as well as increased investment in the programme budget.
If there is something that really has contributed to the progress and construction of the European Union that has been the Erasmus program, which over the past 25 years is making possible a bridge between young people from different member countries and has led us to consider all more like the Europeans brothers that we are. Summarizing, in my oponion there is a lot of reasons that show us that worth to keep these scholarships.
For that this legislative proposal becomes reality are needed more than one million signatures, so please I ask you to go into the website to take more info, sign the petition here and also share it among your friends.
Thank you very much for contribute to save the Erasmus Programme!
