- link Member States in defining education policies.
The focus of ERASMUS+ is to strengthen young people's potential for active participation in civil society, developing leadership skills, solidarity and understanding between cultures.
In sports, cooperation and networking of sports organizations and support for projects that can indirectly contribute to the mitigation of social and economic aspects of physical inactivity are a priority.
