After six months of work, the international Consortium that integrates ‘Connecting People for Green Skills’, a project funded by the European Union and led by the Territorial Employment Pact in Ribera County, PATER (es), is able to produce its first results. They correspond to the research phase and consist of:
- An updated diagnosis on the EU construction sector situation, with a special attention to its employees;
- A report on best practices and interesting experiences that have been implemented in sustainable building in EU countries;
- A catalog of new employment opportunities in the form of ‘green jobs’ that, once evaluated the market situation, might be able to establish a new niche job with future prospects.
