Youth employment in the Mediterranean

Project Description

Given the worrying unemployment rates in the Latin Arc space, it is essential to develop local policies for the promotion of youth training and employment. To this end, we suggest that local administrations and companies create joint working teams for the promotion of labour market insertion and training. Yet another aim of this initiative is to create a transnational internship program all across the Latin Arc space whereby young students can gain work experience in other Mediterranean countries and subsequently apply the notions learnt in their places of origin (in terms of initiatives and solutions).


The project’s goal is to design and implement local strategies for youth employment, training and International mobility across the Latin Arc space.



We urgently need a joint action of policy makers, private sectors, universities and civil society because the future of tourism must be sustainable
