SOSUSK: Opportunities of a greener economy

The European Commission is designing paths and tactics to turn the European Union into a climate neutral organisation by 2050. In order to reach such an ambitious objective, it recommends to cut 90% of greenhouse gas emissions by 2040 compared to the levels of 1990; moreover, the initiative also wants to hold social policies and fairness as the main pillars of the transition. This will be achieved through the involvement of vulnerable citizens and distressed regions of the Union thanks to the Social Climate Fund and the Just transition Fund.

In order to address the challenges and issues arising from such ambitious objectives, the European Union aims at forming citizens on the importance of such initiatives and how to grasp the opportunities that will emerge from these economic changes.

The SOSUSK project, part of the larger ERASMUS+ program, is financed by the European Union and aims at providing NEETs (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) with social and sustainable skills; this will help them to start entrepreneurial activities and thrive in a changing economy which is moving towards sustainable business models.

The greening of the economy, summed with the development of social entrepreneurship can empower communities, benefit the economy and address environmental challenges through a much needed bottom-up approach; SOSUSK project allows for the diffusion of such good practices that will help European youth to face future challenges.

Green activities will in fact help reduce humans’ impact on the planet and manage the transition towards more inclusive and efficient economic model. The challenges that we face are also opportunities to value young people and their capabilities to shape a more just society.
