Youth and employment
Within the Committee on Culture and Education (CULT), my main focus is on youth-related issues. As Shadow Rapporteur for the Renew Europe group, I worked on the report on the European Solidarity Corps, which allows young people to volunteer or participate in projects in their own country or abroad, for the benefit of communities and people across Europe. In the 2021-2027 Multiannual Financial Framework, the Corps has been given additional weight, as for the first time in history it has its own budget of just over €1 billion, almost three times more than in the previous financial period.
I am also a member of the important Employment and Social Affairs Committee (EMPL), which, among other things, has succeeded in pushing through a legislative proposal on guaranteeing a minimum wage in all EU Member States, enabling EU citizens to enjoy a decent standard of living. The aim of this legislation is to promote the setting of an adequate statutory minimum wage and, therefore, decent working and living conditions for employees in the Union.
Ideas Transcending Boundaries
We have set up a special website for young people – Ideas Transcending Boundaries – to offer you a platform where you can express your opinions, ideas and wishes and to encourage you to actively participate in creating a better future for Slovenia, the EU and the world. We will make every effort to implement the best proposals that come forward, thus ensuring that your ideas do not merely remain a dead letter.
