Grant Agreement Number: 2021-2-EL02-KA220-YOU-000050038

Between 2012 and 2018 the number of jobs linked to the circular economy in the EU grew by 5% to reach around 4 million, which demonstrates the high potential for job creation and growth from exploiting the circular economy opportunities. This manifested job growth in circular economy could be a potential driver to increase youth participation in the labour market and help European countries address the high youth unemployment rates.
The Sync project presents a new non-formal educational framework to help young people harness the entrepreneurship and innovation capital of the circular economy.
