CI-You: Out of the Box International, together with partners from Cyprus (CSI), Greece (IED & AKMI), Hungary (IMRO), Serbia (EDUFONS), Italy (JUMP) and Slovenia (MIITR) have launched the “CI-You: Circular economy youth leaders” project in April 2021.
The CI-You Project aims to foster a sense of initiative and circular entrepreneurship among young people and to stimulate them to develop skills needed in circular economy through trainings and skills development.
The project will promote quality circular economy jobs in the consortium’s partner countries, by training the youth with the skills needed in a circular economy. The potential for youth to consider self-employment in the circular economy sector has not yet been fully realized in the European Union and many young people have circular economy related professional and vocational skills, but not circular entrepreneurial skills. The main aim of the CI-You project is to help further improve the level of green business culture in Europe by providing the youth with knowledge and concepts in the field of the circular economy.
