The European Solidarity Corps is taking shape. So far 24 000 young Europeans have registered to engage in solidarity activities across Europe, and authorised organisations can now access the database and look for suitable candidates for their projects.

In parallel, the Commission is preparing a legislative proposal for adoption in the first half of 2017 to create a dedicated legal base for the European Solidarity Corps. As part of this process, the Commission has launched both a public consultation as well as targeted consultations with key stakeholders involved in youth work in the EU.

To round up the consultation process on the future shape of the European Solidarity Corps the Commission is now inviting interested parties such as MEPs and Council representatives, youth organisations, representatives of national Erasmus+ agencies, employers and trade union representatives, and alumni volunteers to a stakeholder forum in Brussels.
