Green skills are among the most relevant focuses of climate action, helping us to promote and support green employment – European Climate Pact
DIGI-BREAKER PLUS (DB+) is a cooperation partnership that aims to accelerate the green and digital transition. However, the project partners believe that job seekers cannot succeed in this new world alone, but need guidance and counselling to give them the best possible chance to find employment as well as opportunities for validation and recognition of knowledge and competencies. In the context of rapid digitalization, both unemployed users and counsellors who do not include the use of digital tools in their work practices are at growing risk of exclusion.
Begun in December 2022, DB+ is creating a multimedia toolkit that facilitates access to career orientation services, while promoting self-awareness, self-organisation and the role of community development in the job-search process. The project will also focus on the impact of the green transition, as there is scope for greener economic activity across a broad spectrum of sectors.
