26-28 November, Marseille. The Secretariat of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfMS) and the European Institute for Cooperation and Development (IECD) will jointly organise, on 26-28 November 2018, the Annual Conference of the Mediterranean New Chance network (MedNC). The event, that will take place in Marseille (France), will be held back to back with the 10th meeting of the MedNC Steering Committee.
The first two days will be devoted to trainings among the peer members of the MedNC network as well as to visits to field-based centres. The third day, open to public by invitation, will aim at promoting networking, synergies and collaboration between the MedNC members and relevant partners and stakeholders working on socio-professional integration of young people from both the public and private sectors and the civil society. Workshops on best practices identified through a mapping-exercise carried out by the MedNC network and exchanges with enterprises and experts on the personal competences searched by the employers will be planned.
The UfM-labelled regional project Mediterranean New Chance (In French, Méditerranée Nouvelle Chance MedNC) addresses the challenge of socio-professional integration of young people and, particularly, of those youngsters who are not in Education, Employment, or Training (NEETs) by mobilizing and strengthening cooperation among stakeholders from both rims of the Mediterranean, including second chance schools. The project, framed within the Mediterranean Initiative for Jobs (Med4Jobs) and coordinated since the 1st of January 2018 by the European Institute of Cooperation and Development (IECD), is currently being implemented in Algeria, Egypt, France, Lebanon, Morocco, Portugal, Spain and Tunisia through capacity building activities and the exchange of innovative education experiences and best practices among partners.
