Green MSP Ross Greer explains that while Erasmus+ tends to be associated with middle class university students, it actually goes “far, far beyond that”.
He points to the programme working in with schools, sports organisations, youth organisations and others.
Particularly for working class young people, participation in Erasmus+ has been life changing he says.
Mr Greer argues Erasmus+ also “speaks to the kind of country we want to be”, noting the benefits of exposing people to other cultures.
Erasmus+ is under threat because the UK government has “blindly” committed to a hard Brexit and ending freedom of movement, the Green MSP claims.
