KnOwledge and Skills DevelopMent on InNovative Green EntrepreneurshIp Models for NEETs to Build CirculAr Economy

Data published by the European Union through Eurostat in 2020 explained that around 17.6% of the 20-34 years olds in the EU were neither in employment nor in education and training (NEETs). Also based on the OECD Education at a Glance 2021 report shown in 2020, the share of NEET young adults aged 18-24 years old was 15.1% on average across OECD countries. Particularly, during this COVID-19 pandemic, the opportunity for young people to have and create decent jobs,training and quality education became serious issues. This project is focusing on NEETs development through the lens of a

green and circular economy model. The knowledge and skills development about this topic is a necessity to develop among young people to support them in tackling unemployment and low skilled employment rate which can weaken the human capital of the country.


Economy and environment are major challenges which youth are facing nowadays and will face in the future. Green and circular economy models can be identified as a very important topic among the NEETs which can lead to growth and regenerative economic potential. The capacity building about green entrepreneurship and circular economy will be really useful especially for the NEETs to develop and improve their knowledge and skill to create better quality of lives, and as well build new opportunities that can be used to create decent jobs for all.


-Develop knowledge and practical skills courses – for NEETs on green and circular economy to build a sustainable future for creating resilient communities. The knowledge and skills training courses will be given through workshops, tailored soft skills training, and through an e-learning system.

-Create opportunities for all to tackle gender gaps in terms of getting equal access to education, training related to the green and circular economy, and get information about opportunities like competition, grant and funding which are able to support

them to plan, develop and implement their green business’ ideas and models in the future.

-Prepare and help the NEETs to stimulate on developing green and circular economy business model ideas through innovative training courses and expert network consultation with the target around at least 180 participants – 30 participants/partner.
