The European project RESMYLE, “Repenser Emploi et Insertion Sociale des Jeunes Méditerranéens à Travers le Développement Durable” officially starts on the 1st of September 2019.
The project is funded by the European Program ENI CBC MED 2014-2020, with a total budget of €2.1 million with an EU contribution of €1.9 million (90%) and it will lasts for 36 months.
ADR is a partner in the project leaded by CDEPP (Coopérative d'Activité et d'Emploi Petra Patrimonia) that will coordinate the project in a partnership that involves 8 other partners from 5 countries in the Mediterranean region: France, Italy, Lebanon, Tunisia, Jordan.
About the project
RESMYLE project is based on two findings: firstly, the difficulties of professional integration of young people in the Mediterranean, for NEETS (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) in particular, are increasing. Secondly, the challenges of environmental protection in the Mediterranean basin create many new needs in and around its territories that are largely unfulfilled at the present time, particularly in the lack of skills in some fields: waste sorting, eco-mobility, risk prevention, etc.
Areas of Intervention
· Environmental education, inclusion of sustainable development topics in the support actions carried out by the organizations (associations, social centers working on integration of NEETS in the Mediterranean).
· Practical training, testing of a set of hands-on field trainings for young people focusing on sustainable development and based on mobility, intercultural exchanges and real environmental issues.
· Creation of a Mediterranean network of eco-incubators of youth-led activities based on a common method and shared tutoring/trainings.
What will be improved?
The project aims to create 300 direct jobs for young people, thanks to the socio-economic viability of the 60 incubator projects and the improved employability of participants in the "Mediterranean Practical School for Sustainable Development" and related international mobility program. It will also improve the educational practices of organizations working on youth integration through “train-the-trainers´” tools and the outcomes of the 12 pilot projects involving about 500 young people on environmental issues with social value. Moreover, the creation of 6 eco-incubators will allow young people to develop and test their project activities in a safe environment, enhancing the spirit of initiative and self-employment of people who lack trust and confidence.
