About the project

The Mediterranean area suffers from extremely high rates of youth and female unemployment. To face this challenge, GREENLAND promotes social inclusion and fight against poverty by providing unskilled and underprivileged young people with marketable skills in the Green and Circular Economy, with the potential to generate thousands of jobs. To reach its objective, the project will create new curricula based on market needs, skills transfer to NEETs and women, media-based training tools, and cultural exchanges among young people. The creation of new employment opportunities will be reinforced by the sector-skills alliances between TVETs and SMEs.

Objective

To increase the employability of NEETs (up to 30 years old) and women (all ages) by providing them with marketable skills and qualifications to prepare them for skill-based occupations within the Green and Circular Economy sectors and reduce skill mismatches in rural areas particularly affected by the climate change

What will be improved?

On the environmental side, the project will increase skills for a resource-efficient and inclusive Green Economy that ultimately contributes to combating climate change, reducing the mismatch between the labour market and skills. On the economic side, GREENLAND will support the engagement of NEETs and women to set up enterprises in the Green and Circular Economy sectors. 

Who will benefit?

  • NEETs and women
  • Local SMEs in the Green and Blue Economy sectors
  • Regional and local authorities 
  • Technical and Vocational Education and Training institutions (TVET)
     

Expected achievements

  • 1 e-Learning project platform involving 2,900 NEETs and women
  • 1 entrepreneurial green network
  • 7 long-term action plans
  • 210 national/cross-border traineeships in SMEs operating in the Green and Blue Economy sectors
  • 18 job-shadowing for key staff of policy-making institutions
  • 150 part-time and 150 full-time contracts
  • 20 social employment initiatives by public institutions and civil society organisations 
     

Contribution to policy-making

GREENLAND will support policy-makers in the development of action plans that strengthen the creation of new green jobs for young people. The inclusion of national and local authorities, as well as relevant associated partners, in the development of training activities and profiling tools will contribute to the development of strategies which will be implemented at local level. The key action with a potential high-impact at policy-making level is the job-shadowing experience for key staff of concerned institutions. The project uses European, national and local policies based on youth, employment, agriculture and reduction of poverty as a springboard to increase the efficiency of existing relevant policies.
