Background

‘The European Green Deal is our new growth strategy. It will help us cut emissions while creating jobs.” Ursula von derLeyen, President of the EC.

It is an integral part of the UN’s 2030 Agenda and the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs). It urges for the ‘Proactive re-skilling and upskilling’ of citizens which is necessary ‘to reap the benefits of the ecological transition’.

The GREENWAVE project is inline with the above, as well as addressing the dramatic consequences of Covid-19 in relation to youth unemployment and potential job creation.

GREENWAVE project opens up completely new routes for youth to explore the fight for the environment while engaging the young people in an interactive manner, customized to their generational preferences. At the same time creates the needed setting so youth are able to view the labour market in a new, greener manner.

Green jobs and green entrepreneurship are some of the key aspects which will define the success of the Green Deal and the EU environmental goals.

Project Aim

The GREENWAVE is a 24 monthly’ project which aims to address the issue of youth unemployment and support young people opening new routes for them in the green economy. The project is in line with the priority for tackling environmental and climate changes (SDG 2030) as well as promoting the EU GREEN DEAL SCHEME.

The GREENWAVE project does not only raise the awareness of environmental challenges, but it also promotes the acquisition of green competences, knowledge and attitudes based on the development of a GREEN COMPETENCE FRAMEWORK which is an urgent need as referred to in the EU GREEN DEAL.

Eco-friendly responsible young people will adopt green habits and practices that will support them in their life with an impact on their families, the community they live in and the economy.

The project aims at addressing youth unemployment as a consequence of the economic crisis through engaging young people in entrepreneurship education combined with responsibility towards the environment.
