European Solidarity Corps

EDF welcomes the European Commission’s initiative on European Solidarity Corps. Ahead of submitting its response to the second consultation on the European Solidarity Corps, EDF would like to take the opportunity to issue an initial response to the first outline of the European Solidarity Corps. This response is based on a preliminary consultation of EDF Youth Committee members and draws from EDF’s past work on employment and social policy, including EDF’s Alternative Report to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. In the past weeks months, EDF undertook detailed discussions with its wider youth network and partners in order to submit a comprehensive input to the consultation by April 2017. EDF responded the first consultation.
