Skills4Sports Press Conference in Chalkida, Greece
Skills4Sports project will be presented to the media of Chalkida within the organization of a Press Conference by the Developmnet Agency of Evia, on July 21st, 2021 at 13:30pm in Hall of Regional Council, Chalkida.
The press day aims to communicate to the local press and thematic journalists in Greece about the Skills4Sports project’s activities, goals and planned outcomes.
The Skills4Sports project, of which the Development Agency of Evia is the lead beneficiary working together with other seven organizations from Greece, Palestine, Lebanon, Italy, Spain, and Malta, precisely aims to increase the employability of the young people with difficulties accessing the labor market in the Mediterranean area. The purpose is to create new curricula in professions related to sports and business-oriented (merchandising, marketing, administration, event management). Based on the existing skills gap between jobseekers and companies’ requirements, an initial analysis will lead to e-tools (e-learning platform, mobile app, and social-media app) aimed at young people. The "Strategic Alliance for Skills4Sports" network will also be created, aimed at agents involved in the sports field. All this must ensure the reduction of the concordance of requirements and skills between supply and demand, and the creation of new opportunities for young people who are currently neither studying nor working.
