By the end of 2016, building on European Voluntary Service's success and quality developments, a new programme “European Solidarity Corps” was launched. In November 2018, European Solidarity Corps Resource Centre was established. One of the first tasks of the Resource Centre was to commission a project, a study on the meaning of the concept of solidarity. The project is called “‘4Thought: finding a common narrative on the concept of Solidarity from Research, Practice, Policy, Young people”. It has the main aim to create a vision of what the concept of solidarity means to different people, all the while assisting in implementation of the European Solidarity Corps by making it clearer what is meant by a ‘solidarity activity’.
