Gender, Inclusion & Human rights

How to give an innovative boost to social inclusion, fight against poverty, youth and women employment in the Mediterranean area?

This will be possible, thanks to MY SEA, a ground-breaking project, launched on October 15th, 2020 and running until April 2023, supported by the ENI CBC MED programme of the European Union.

Standing for “Mediterranean Youth, NEETs and women advancing Skills, Employment and Awareness in the blue and green economy” – MY SEA is a project led by CIES Onlus and implemented in partnership with organisations from Lebanon, Jordan, Tunisia and Greece.

A ground-breaking project fostering social inclusion and employability

The project will implement activities in Lebanon, Jordan, Tunisia, Greece and Italy in order to promote social inclusion and fight against poverty, improve the employment of youth (18-24) and women, as well as NEETs (“Not in Education, nor in Employment, or Training” up to 30 years old) in the agricultural waste management sectors.

To do so, MYSEA will develop trainings oriented to both sectors, empower local governance as well as the alliance and the exchange of competences among stakeholders from the economic sector and technical and professional training institutions (TVET) with the aim of improving compatibility between curricula and professional requirements.

The first milestone of the project will be an online press conference, planned on February 2nd, 2021, more details about which will be disclosed soon. Meanwhile, to get further information about the project’s activities, outputs and outcomes you can visit MYSEA website or write to
