The project partners would like to inspire and engage youth between 15 and 29 to pursue a career in the Blue Economy. This will be done by bringing together experts from the Blue Economy and youth organisations to share knowledge about training opportunities and vacant jobs. A training programme will be developed for young mentors who will promote the sector to 39,000 young people in schools, adult education centres, NGOs, unemployment services and local associations across five countries. At least 2,000 young people will get access to training and mentoring. The project partners will also create a Blue Economy guide and a job platform.

Target groups:

  • Young people not in employment, education or training (NEETs)
  • Youth at risk of becoming NEETs
