Sharing knowledge on the creation of Green Jobs through concrete experiences made in the Euro-Mediterranean Area is the main objective of the Seminar, which will take place in a form of a public event open to local audience, at the presence of social innovators, creative people,  local and national institutions and representatives of green business sectors and civil society.

The Seminar will contribute to raise awareness on the potentialities of green jobs for a sustainable development as well as to collect ideas and visions to be included into a Euro-Mediterranean Green Jobs Chart.

Why are Green Jobs a real opportunity for local development? How can these opportunities be spread at regional level?
