27 major stakeholders in education and training adopt a common position
paper on their vision for the future of education, training and youth
programmes. Entitled “*Investing in People through Sustainable and Inclusive
EU Programmes”* the position paper proposes 4 key principles on the vision
for the future programmes as well as 4 steps towards more effective
programmes including an annex with recommendations for the next financial

The promoters believe that EU programmes should aim to support organisations
and individual learners in *building the Europe-wide learning space** *step
by step. This Area should aim at making lifelong learning a reality for all
its citizens. The current programmes are crucial for millions of learners
and educators in Europe. They benefit from a wide recognition but *their
impact remains limited due to scarce resources*.

With the adoption of the “EU2020 strategy”, education and training is at the
heart of the European project. Community programmes should have the means to
contribute to these objectives notably in terms of equal access to lifelong
learning. To reach “EU2020” targets it is crucial that EU Member
states *consider
investing in people as a top priority* in the next financial perspectives.

In order to reach the policy objectives set in “EU2020” it is also important
to make sure the programmes do reach their targeted publics. We believe it
is important to *remove obstacles to participation*.
