The Effective Practice Guide to Youth-Led Green Job Creation Initiatives in Europe (EPG) is now available here.
The EPG’s accompanying index is available as a pdf file here.
Peace Child International was commissioned by the EU to produce a definitive guide to job creation initiatives across Europe. These initiatives must be targeted towards youth or led by youth and, ideally, have a sustainable development focus (the youth unemployment crisis and climate change share the same solution in the development of a green economy).
The purpose of this Effective Practice Guide to Youth-Led Green Job Creation Initiatives in Europe (EPG) is to serve as a resource and inspiration for people who want to help tackle the youth unemployment crisis, who are eager to start their own job creation initiative or who want to learn more about employability, entrepreneurship, training and mentoring options in Europe.
The EPG is made up of four major sections:
1. Explanations about the causes and effects of the crisis; the solutions the green economy and corporate social responsibility can offer; the various approaches initiatives can take to help create jobs; and the practices of the most effective job creation initiatives.
2. In-depth descriptions of 14 programmes from all over Europe that serve as examples of effective practice.
3. A massive index of 900+ job creation initiatives all across Europe.
4. An interactive map of job creation initiatives worldwide (website only).
