The “Mediterranean Youth, NEETs and women advancing Skills, Employment and Awareness in the Blue and Green Economy – MYSEA” project, co-funded by the European Union under the ENI CBC MED Programme 2014-2020, will be officially launched on 15 February during a virtual press conference.

The MYSEA project involves 5 different countries: Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Jordan and Tunisia. These selected countries register the highest number of unemployed youths, young women and NEETs (Not in Education, Employment or Training) across the Mediterranean and share similar demographic changes, skill mismatches, rigid regulations and gender gaps.

The MYSEA implementing partners will join their forces and cooperate to increase the employability of 1000 youth, women and NEETs in the agri-food and waste management industries by developing training oriented to both sectors and strengthening local governance and sector-skills alliances between economic actors and TVET institutions to align the education curricula with sector’s needs.

MYSEA is a 30 months project, with a total budget of €3.6 million.
