First step: Kick Off Meeting

In January 2024, two technicians from the European Projects department attended the Kick Off Meeting of the new project “Green Youth Employability: Emerging Skills and Jobs for a Fair and Green Society” in Bologna, Italy.

It was a stressful day of meetings to plan and organise this 36-months project based on the employability of young people linked with the need to preserve the environment and natural resources, with the main objective of training young people to get quality jobs that respects the environment. This will be achieved through a survey, a toolkit, an e-learning platform and 4 green youth labs; all made by and for the project.

The meeting was organised in several parts just for organise and plan the different activities that we should do, the budget, the collaborators, etc. The strongest point was sharing our ideas, experiences and techniques to create a unique strategy to achieve our objectives.

We feel very encouraged to work in this project!

Second step: Survey
