The Council of Education, Training and Employment of the Region of Murcia, Mr. Constantino Sotoca, opened the seminar “Greener futures for young people – Social and labour inclusion strategies for young people”, funded by the European Commission, bringing together organizations from United Kingdom, France, Sweden and Spain.

Last 10th of February of 2012 took place in Murcia a seminar on youth employment participating public institutions, universities, trade unions, enterprise representatives, non-for-profit organizations and other social agents of particular relevance in the field of social and labour integration. To this end, Cajamurcia Foundation participated giving its Cultural Room for the event.

This meeting was held under the Greener Futures for young people project, involving the following organizations: Action with Communities in Rural Kent and Diagrama Foundation from United Kingdom, ASPP from France, Basta from Sweden and Fundación Diagrama of Spain. Its main objective is to analyze the reality of the labour market for young people, promoting the development of good practices and strategies to help improving the employability of this population sector.

During the day, the Council highlighted the importance of such initiatives, which aim to address the needs of a "vulnerable group" which paradoxically is the "best-trained generation" of our history. Along with this analysis, the director of Fundación Diagrama noted the desirability of all social, economic and educational efforts that have to be coordinated and combined to give young people the opportunity to build a future and collaborate in building a more prosperous and with less inequality society, emphasizing the social, solidarity-focussed and sustainable development.
