On 27 November, as part of the DEEP-linking Youth project, ECAS and the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) held a live chat with Lloyd Huitson, Policy Officer at the European Commission, DG Education and Culture.
The Facebook chat was organised in order to promote more interactions between young citizens and policy-makers, allowing participants to put questions about youth mobility in Europe and the Erasmus+ Programme directly to the European Commission.
The chat was preceded by a short interview with Lloyd, during which he explored some of the current challenges to the Erasmus+ Programme that will need to be tackled in order to make the post-2020 Programme simpler, more inclusive and with a greater global dimension.
Many of the questions posted on the live chat by the participants concerned accommodation and financial issues, the European Solidarity Corps and the implications of Brexit for the Erasmus+ programme.
