On February 15th 2021 the “Mediterranean Youth, NEETs and women advancing Skills, Employment and Awareness in the Blue and Green Economy – MYSEA” project has been officially launched through a virtual press conference.

MYSEA is a 30 months project financed by the European Union with a 90% contribution. It will increase the employability of 1000 youth, women and NEETs in the agrifood and waste management industries in five countries on the Mediterranean: Italy, Lebanon, Jordan, Greece and Tunisia. The Press Conference gave to the participants, the stakeholders and the keynote speakers involved – among them Mr Fabrizio Paloni, Coordinator of the ENI CBC Med Joint Technical Secretariat - the opportunity to promote a collective reflection on future and common challenges to boost effective jointly action and achieve the necessary political commitments necessary for making a real and long-term change.

Only together and only by boosting cooperation within the Euro - Mediterranean area, we can face our common challenges to bridge the skill mismatches and the gender gap, to foster alliances and to promote pro-youth employment schemes.

People-to-people cooperation is at the heart of the MYSEA project. MYSEA foster the exchange of experience and good practices, the development of local initiatives by involving 15 local, regional and national authorities and ministries and encourage active participation of all actors in the agrifood and waste management sectors by promoting sector alliances between 10 Technical and Vocational Education and Training - TVET institutions and 100 economic actors. It shall facilitate communication, promote intercultural learning, encourage the development of interpersonal contacts and the building of solid cross borders partnerships with a long-term perspective.

Mohamed Madhkour, who collaborated within the largest UN development program in Tunisia as financial advisory; Yannis Lyeros, from Greece, specialised in public sector institutions, private organisations, welfare Institutions and NGOs consultancy and Dr Paolo Orneli, who is Councillor of the Executive Board for Economic Development, Commerce and Crafts, Research, Start-Up and Innovation of the Lazio Region (Italy) are only few of the many great experts and researchers involved.
