MYSEA project Open Day in Italy: promoting a collective reflection on the next challenges for the training and labour inclusion of youth, women, and NEETs

The Open Day launches the MYSEA project in Italy and focuses on the research activities which will actively involve stakeholders from the Sicily and Lazio regions, key actors for the evaluation of strengths and challenges for youth, entrepreneurs, and educational sectors in our country and for the identification of solutions to follow in order to create conditions for development, competitiveness and innovation in the short, medium and long term.

The event aims at promoting a collective reflection on the next challenges for the training and labour inclusion of youth, women, and NEETs, to identify actions which are efficient and shared with economic actors of the green and blue economy, training institutions and policy makers responsible for the elaboration of sound employment policies.

In particular, the debate will investigate the centrality of training needs and skill mismatch analysis to increase the employability of youth, women, and NEETs. Hence the need to analyze the agri-food and waste management sectors and their features, including the educational ones, which allow for a full exploitation of opportunities of economic growth and job creation, to mitigate risks and to drive public interest.
