The Mediterranean area suffers from extremely high rates of youth/female unemployment levels and climate change. If we are to make a sea change in the way our society produces, it will need skilled workers to push it through. GREENLAND sets out a series of incisive training actions for NEETS and women within the Green and Circular Economy (GaCE), with long-lasting, Policy-relevant innovations.
GREENLAND ensures that key public and private organizations are actively involved and creates the opportunities and skills for Policy innovation to take place. The GREENLAND outputs include labour market analysis to identify:
- 2900 NEETs/Women through profiling, curricula development and skills transfer to NEETs/Women (mentoring, training, e-learning tools, soft-skills coaching developed through “sector-skills alliances” between TVETs and SMEs),
- 210 national/cross-border traineeships in enterprises and
- 18 job-shadowing for key staff of policy-making institutions:
- actions with an exceptionally high impact at policy-making level.
- Through the creation of an Entrepreneurial Green Network (EGN),
- 7 agreements and
- 7 long-term Action plans (APs), key actors from 7 Med nations (public authorities, TVETs, employment agencies, SMEs) will be brought around the same table to foster Policy innovation in Green Growth job creation and training targeting NEETs.

- capitalisation of 7 APs
