The YENESIS project - Youth Employment Network for Energy Sustainability in Islands, with a total budget of 2.7 million, aims to reduce youth unemployment in the islands of Europe by promoting green, sustainable occupations.

In this project, the Cyprus Energy Agency is the coordinator of a consortium of 10 organizations, where through a series of training, mentoring and job placement activities, it will prepare new people to join the green professions market.

The four key areas to tackle the project are Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy, Sustainable Tourism and Sustainable Transport. Emphasis will also be placed on Youth Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

During the 40 months of the project, training material will be prepared for the above areas, through which the project participants will be trained. Then, they will be able to visit good practices abroad and have the opportunity to practice and work in the field of their choice.

Entrepreneurship guidance will be provided throughout the project to promote new ideas and start-ups.

The stakeholders involved in the project are the Møre and Romsdal County Authority (NO), the Network of Sustainable Greek Islands (GR), the Association of Estonian Islands (EU), the Regional Agency for Energy and the Autonomous Region of Madeira (PU), The International Center for Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems (HR), Sapienza University of Rome (IT), Canary Islands Institute of Technology (ES), Frederick University (CY) and Chrysalis LEAP Limited (CY).

Project funding comes from the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment.
