Young lobbyists in Strasbourg

Promoting the written declaration on supporting talent in the European Union.

The group consists of talent experts, young researchers, and winners of innovation competitions who are dedicated to the issue of talent support. Four representatives of the European Parliament call on the Member States to consider measures to promote curricular and extracurricular forms of talent support, including training for educational professionals to recognise and help talent. According to the declaration it would be important to consider talent support as part of ‘non-formal learning’ and a priority in future European strategies, such as the strategies guiding the European Research Area and the European Social Fund. We hope that the representatives will consider the proposal.

Talent is a special kind of natural resource that is available in every country.
