“More than a recovery plan, this is a once in a lifetime chance to emerge stronger from the pandemic, transform our economies, create opportunities and jobs for the Europe where we want to live. We have everything to make this happen.”

The EC’s principles of making Europe greener, digital and resilient also support and modernize institutions that are in direct relationship with young people and the future generation that will lead Europe in the direction we can now predetermine.
Main Elements of agreement:
