Young people had to give up a lot during the pandemic, to protect everyone’s safety. You were asked to stay at home and follow the lessons from a distance at this stage of life. where social interaction is everything. The younger generations have shown an incredible sense of responsibility. Now the least we can do is try to reciprocate, so not only have we provided vaccines to all Europeans in record time, and in Italy the 80% of young people between 18 and 25 years old have completed the vaccination course, but we have also developed a huge economic recovery plan to guarantee you the best job opportunities and prospects, “he said.
The Next Generation Eu
Von der Leyen continues: “Since we know that you care about the future, and that you are the most connected generation of all time, this plan aims to make our economy and society greener and more digital: it is for you, that’s why we call it Next Generation Eu, because it’s made for you, for the next generation of Europeans. Now I want Europe to hear what you have to say at the conference on the future of Europe and during the European year of young people, because Europe belongs to you, to the next generation. Europe is all of us, Europe is you “.
