Following the agreement reached on 27th of June the European Solidarity Corps (ESC) was created to help young people between 18 and 30 to participate in a range of solidarity activities in different fields (environment, culture, social services, helping refugees, migrants, children or the elderly) as a tangible expression of European values. The aim of the ESC is to contribute to addressing unmet societal needs while enhancing young people’s personal, educational, social, civic and professional development. The phase two of the ESC implementation starts now with launching an open call with the objective of seeing the first 100.000 Europeans participate in ESC activities by 2020.
