Usually youth in the rural areas are suffering of a sense of isolation and frustration which very often provokes a really brain drain and the depopulation of the countries.
Youth people are moving to cites hoping to find out better opportunities.
More than often, after having finished they studies, they never come back in the countryside.
The youth unemployement can be fought with green job opportunities empowering their abilities and generating new perspectives.
The role of the multipliers is crucial because they can spread these opportunities among the youngsters.
Unemployment affects young people from all walks of life.
Clearly some young people are more vulnerable than others, especially those who are living in rural areas.
Although rural youth face an additional set of barriers which are linked to their spatial isolation and to the narrow range of opportunities which are available.
For rural youth, some of the most effective bridges into the labour market (such as education and training) may be limited or inaccessible and opportunities to fulfill aspirations may be restricted.
Youth in rural areas face three types of deprivation related to households, opportunities and mobility.
Opportunity deprivation is linked to lack of jobs and services.
This project is conceived inside the main general framework of european cooperation in the youth field and is focused on the issues of: green skills and green jobs as a new solution for employment, Youth Participation and Active Citizenship.
"Green Power” will involve young people committed on non formal education activities, workshops, meetings with trainers, experts and visits to some best practices of green jobs in Sardinia in order to better picture green economy in its practical applications.
The mobility project will focus on how to face youth unemployement developing new green job opportunities.
The project aims to raise awareness about green economy as fundamental issue of our future and to develop from this belief strategies of innovative jobs for the european youth, according also to the main guidelines of the trio-presidency of EU.
Learning objectives of the project are:
1. To promote the so called green skills as a competences for create new job opportunities;
2. To stimulate the creativity and sense of entrepreneurship in the green sector through nfe methodologies;
3. To share best practices, the capacities of developing and implementing international youth projects.
Through non formal education and the trainers support, participants will focus on mutual understanding of their culture and they will reflect on nowadays environmental related challenges, youth unemployment and rural depopulation in each european country and the common issues we share on these topics.
Those visits are conceived to show participants how green skills and natural resources can be means of development for rural areas in a way that allow us to promote sustainable economic and social growth.
The concept of sustainable development will be approached also in a way to foster youth active citizenships.
In order to foster future cooperation, during the project there will be a project management session to promote new transnational actions.
Several methodologies are designed to ensure the principles of non formal education and intercultural learning, as group work and activities, presentations, workshops and personal assignments as well as to provide space to share experience and know-how.
