• The main objective of the project is to reduce youth unemployment by creating green jobs on islands
  • Four thematic areas are addressed in job creation: energy efficiency, renewables, sustainable tourism, and mobility
  • The project will work with participants of the target groups in an elaborate process to equip and prepare the young people for employment in green jobs

In order to guarantee the sustainability of future employment, the project focuses on energy and environmentally sustainable occupations which not only are deemed to be necessary and highly sought for in the coming years, but will also ensure sustainability in the grand scheme of things.
