The YOUTHShare research project aims at reducing youth unemployment in coastal and island regions of Mediterranean EEA by advancing young NEETs skills in trans-locally resilient agri-food production and the pertinent circular economies through social entrepreneurship and sharing economy platforms.

The project will deliver a transnational Research Network and an Employment Centre, leading to informed institutional engagement for NEETs. Knowledge transfer will deliver toolkits for counselling and training, thus, enhancing employability. Finally, work-based training on social entrepreneurship and start-up empowerment by sharing platforms will boost entrepreneurship.

The direct target groups are the, usually ignored, between 25-29, inactive low-skilled women and migrants, the latter selected from Reception Centers (RICs) of the area, while the end beneficiaries are regional-scale non-traditional actors, supporting youth employability.

The kick-off meeting of the YOUTHShare research project took place on the 27th of November in Athens. A promising start for a promising project!
