Syrian Youth Assembly is now project partner Go4DiGREEN
The Go4DiGREEN digital vocational training program aims to improve the situation of European refugees by measurably and sustainably increasing the digital and entrepreneurial skills of this target group.
Refugees have great potential to contribute to society and to the ambitious goals of the EU Green Deal. You can significantly advance the transformation to climate neutrality and become climate ambassadors in third countries.
Taking into account core EU principles such as accessibility and inclusion and contributing to the European Green Deal, the project consortium will develop accessible and needs-based training materials on green entrepreneurship.
Go4DiGREEN is an innovative and rapid response to the changing operational context due to the pandemic and climate change as two major factors in shrinking humanitarian space.
The project goes beyond existing solution mechanisms to address humanitarian challenges and integrate people who have been forced to flee their homes.
Go4DiGREEN shifts the focus from basic economic inclusion to refugee empowerment, where they will be able to fulfill their potential and contribute as entrepreneurs to local economic and Green Deal development.
Go4DiGreen alongside the European dimension of the project is an innovation that has the potential to be replicated around the world, where its impact will be multiplied.
