The BlueGeneration project continues to inform young people about the Blue Economy career opportunities and to offer free mentoring and counseling services to young men and women even do it remotely due to Covid-19 restrictions per area. The mentors of the BlueGeneration project have also adapted the information program for schools, professional training organizations and youth centers in order to continue this great European-wide effort via the internet.
Blue Generation’s goal is to engage young people aged 15 to 29 years in the so-called marine vocations, as a modern, attractive, and efficient alternative option to unemployment.
Blue Generation focuses on the 7 sectors of the Blue Economy: coastal tourism, shipbuilding, ocean energy, marine biotechnology, maritime transport, fishing, and fish farming/aquacultures and it is implemented by an international partnership of organizations from Bulgaria, Greece, Poland, Portugal and Spain with the support of experts in the Blue Economy from Belgium, Germany, Iceland and Norway. The coordinator of the project in Greece is Militos Consulting S.A. with the active support of Sea Teach (Spain).
