Social cohesion for territorial development, through youth employment
The unemployment rate among the Spanish youth is 34%.
Rural Spain loses 5 inhabitants per hour.
The Sagra region has lost 5% of its population since 2008.
15.52% of the population of the la Sagra district is under 29 years old.
SIC4Change proposes an initiative to promote the socio-occupational insertion of young people in a vulnerable situation in the la Sagra region and thus avoid its depopulation. To do this, we have created a space for exchange, reflection and generation of joint innovative solutions between regional youth, companies and public administration.
We pursue three specific objectives: (1) create dialogue spaces between different agents, to create mutual understanding and knowledge about different perceptions of vulnerability and youth employment, (2) create a narrative of change at the local level and (3) generate and launch employment initiatives for these young people through multiple stakeholder alliances, capable of stimulating the local economy.
