The Young European Movement, in partnership with European Movement UK and the British Youth Council, is calling on the UK Government to restore Britain’s membership of the Erasmus+ Programme, which was ended abruptly in 2020 despite promises of its continuation.

Restoring Britain’s place in the Erasmus+ Programme would unlock millions in additional funding for our schools and universities, giving students the opportunity to once more study and travel across Europe. We believe this is a vital step in retaining Britain’s standing in the world and upholding the reputation of our universities.

Further, restoring Britain’s membership of Erasmus+ would allow youth organisations in towns and villages across the country to regain access to much-needed funding to support their activities, promoting diversity and giving young people fresh opportunities.
