Grosseto University Hub, the Region of Tuscany and Anci Toscana organised the first national event to launch the Italian pilot project which will finance and activate 120 green internships for young people aged 25-29 who are not currently engaged in education, employment or training in the Siena and Grosseto areas, thanks to INTERCEPT.
The scheme set up by Anci Toscana, in collaboration with ARTI, was presented on Oct.28th 2022 at the Chamber of Commerce of Siena, together with other programs and projects that support young people to unleash their potential in the green job market.
60 people attended the event in Siena, bringing together professionals and stakeholders from the EU Commission, Jobsplus Malta, the Region of Tuscany, ARTI, IRPET, the Municipality of Siena and of Civitella Paganico, the University of Siena and of Naples, ITS Siena, the Food Community of Mount Amiata, ARTES 4.0, CES and the VITA Foundation, while 23 people participated online.
The event was opened by Helena Dalli, EU Commissioner for Equality, who gave an interesting keynote speech on the state of youth engagement in the implementation of the just transition. An INTERCEPT POINT was set up just outside the plenary session room to offer guidance on how to activate or participate in green internships under the project's pilot scheme.
The second national event will take place in Tuscany by mid-2023.
