On 21st of February 2022, the Dutch Foundation of Innovation Welfare 2 Work participated in the first Online meeting of the EMO2C project. The vision and objective of this brand new project is to strengthen the emotional and social competences of the target groups, so that this personal empowerment serves as a basis for the development of technical and professional skills.
EU Youth Unemployment
Youth unemployment (people under 25) has an average rate of 17,5% in the whole of Europe. In the South Mediterranean countries it’s even worse, according Eurostat. The vision and objective of the EMO2C project is to strengthen the emotional and social competences of the target groups, so that this personal empowerment serves as a basis for the development of technical and professional skills. The target group in one hand are the youngsters looking for a job, and looking for an opportunity (not NEETs in this case) and the teachers and trainers who will help them to develop these skills.

The partnership is formed by several entities from different countries. INDEPCIE from Spain (coordinator), AKMI from Greece, Efektas Group from Lithuania, VAEV from Austria, Igor Vitale International from Italy and the Dutch Foundation of Innovation Welfare 2 Work from the Netherlands.
