On 30 May, the Tunisian Union of Agriculture and Fishery (UTAP), the HELIOS Tunisian partner, carried out a series of meetings to create synergies and to reach women, young people and Blue and Circular economy organizations.
This was an important step to restart HELIOS cooperation activities in Tunisia, in response to the COVID-19 emergency.

HELIOS team visited Blue and circular economy organizations (public and private) mainly in Ghar El Melh, Tunisia, to introduce the project and the opportunities it offers to help social inclusion of NEETs (Not in Education, Employment, or Training), especially women.

HELIOS – enHancing thE sociaL Inclusion Of neetS – focuses on the Blue and Circular Economy (BaCE), identified as an economic sector with great potential for regenerative economic growth among NEETs. The project will provide curricula for innovative targeted and tailored skills training courses oriented towards specific needs of the BaCE labour market and the needs of NEETs, based on direct interaction with local enterprises. This will be achieved through soft skills coaching and mentoring actions, as well as the creation of e-learning tools and methodologies supported by new technologies to facilitate skills learning for NEETs and women.
