Project MOVE GREEN

Summary

This pilot project aims to promote employability and youth entrepreneurial capacity in green, circular and renewable economy sectors through a training and professional qualification process in Andalusia and Northern Morocco, contributing to the retention of talent in the country of origin. It also aims to strengthen public-private partnerships in green and circular economy at both local and regional level, bringing together institutions, companies and academia.

Channelled in four phases: identification and mobilisation of actors, preparation for training, training placements and integration into the labour market, the project combines mobility of youth, through a circular migration model; mobility, by promoting the development of specific skills and access to an innovative labour market; sustainable economic development, by promoting the renewable and green energy sector; public-private partnerships, through cooperation models between institutions and business entities; and the promotion of a local and regional approach in the management of migration between Andalusia and northern Morocco. 

In addition to the specific activities of each of the phases, the project promotes the exchange of experiences between the two shores of the Strait of Gibraltar through visits of public and private entities linked to renewable energies and the green economy and the organisation of an international seminar on cooperation and innovation policies in the Mediterranean.
