GENTE - Green Entrepreneurship Skills for NEET Persons

Is an Erasmus+ Project with duration of 24 months. Starting on February 2022 and ending on February 2024.

The project will bring together young adults, especially women, who fall in the category of NEET and representatives of SMEs who are interested in making their business greener and give them the chance to explore the possibilities for cooperation.
It will offer NEET people the opportunity to participate in educational activities that will allow them to develop their skills, boost their employability and consider the possibility of starting their own green business.
The project suggests ways in which SMEs can turn environmental and social challenges into business opportunities, by involving NEET people in their activities, especially women, and taking advantage of their existing skills and competences.


The successful implementation of the project will form the basis for NEET’s integration in the European green labour market and society at large and set a good example for other organizations and stakeholders across Europe to follow.

The impact of the outcome will be twofold. First, it will encourage a more inclusive approach from local SMEs towards NEET people, especially women. Second, it will disseminate the experiences, knowledge and practices gained through the project’s actions across and beyond the network of partner organisations of GENTe.
