The Community of Madrid hosted, on 24th and 25th of November 2021, the third international event of the RECRUIT Project.

RECRUIT Project’s main objective is to promote the exchange between three Mediterranean countries (Greece, Italy and Spain) to tackle local unemployment through the sharing of good practices in Social Economy.

The latter represents, in addition, the focus of the event itself. Thus, different associations and enterprises from Spain shared their experiences; among them:

  • Mercado Social de Madrid,
  • ECOINSERTA,
  • Endesys Sociedad Cooperativa,
  • Inrobics,
  • Fecoma,
  • Campus I+G,

Moving on to the second country tackled by the project, representatives from Italy showed how gender equality and youth inclusion are key features to fight unemployment with good practices as testified by Young Women Network, Sprint School Project from Impact Hub Bari, La Fabrica del Farò, RISE-LAB Palermo and the Municipality of Bari.
