“Circular Economy eduCation for socIal incLusion of Women”
CECIL is a 24 months Cooperation partnership aimed at promoting Circular Economy and Plastic Craftworks among women at risk of exclusion as enablers of improved employability, by fostering a greater interaction between the European Green Deal and the EU Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2025.
As stated in the European Skills Agenda, the green and digital transitions are reshaping the way we live, work and interact. The EU’s move to a resource-efficient, circular, digitised and climate neutral economy are expected to create new jobs, while other jobs will change or even disappear. For these reasons, it calls for actions that support the twin transitions and that ensure that people have the right skills for jobs. At the same time, as the EU Gender Equality underlines, “gender equality brings more jobs and higher productivity – a potential which needs to be realised as we embrace the green and digital transitions and face up to our demographic challenges”.
