The Wallonia-Brussels Federation government on Wednesday communicated a “0-25 Childhood and Youth Plan”, a transversal plan dedicated to children and young people up to 25 years old. It includes various measures in 15 areas or themes, from digital to culture, including equal opportunities or different levels of education, with particular attention to the responses to be provided to the Covid-19 pandemic and to the climate transition, according to the executive’s communication.

The various measures of the plan will be set out in more detail next week in the FWB Parliament. There are many measures already known, from the last fiscal year, such as support for students for the purchase of a laptop (75 euros) or future investments in school buildings, linked to stimulus funds from the European windfall of the Recovery and Resilience Facility.

In the school sphere, the government also mentions a package of 12.5 million euros for healthy meals at school. A “transversal plan relating to media education” is being prepared, as well as campaigns to raise awareness of gender stereotypes and power relations.
