This is nearly double the funding compared to its predecessor programme (2014-2020).The 2021-2027 programme puts emphasis on social inclusion, the green and digital transitions, and promoting people’s participation in democratic life. Overall, the programme is expected to triple the number of participants, bringing them up to 12 million people by 2027.
