Training must also be green: this way the labour market will once again absorb young people and the unemployed. Thanks to the EU funds

Advances on the new budget law were made this morning by Undersecretary for Labour Francesca Puglisi, who spoke at the EIMA Preview. During an event organized by Biohabitat, the representative of the Government illustrated the principles and the economic endowment of the new measures to fight unemployment.

One hundred million euros for green economy companies, and one hundred and fifty million euros for the development of agricultural supply chains. Extension and further financial availability to support companies investing in new technologies. Irpef tax exemption for agricultural income of direct farmers. Eco-bonuses and green bonuses extended for the whole of 2021. These are some of the previews on the new budget law offered this morning by the Undersecretary for Labour, Francesca Puglisi, during the conference "High green tech: the future of green cities", promoted by BioHabitat and held online on the platform EDP; EIMA Digital Preview.

"We want to invest the resources of the recovery fund in green skills - said Puglisi - because this is the line that the European Commission itself has indicated. And this meets the need to help people who may lose their jobs due to the pandemic, offering them training aimed at reskilling, the acquisition of skills other than those they already possess, or upskilling, for those who need to make a qualitative leap in their career".

It seems clear, therefore, that when we talk about new technologies we are talking to a large extent about green technologies. Training, therefore, will have to be strengthened and oriented towards this new direction agreed within the community. According to the Undersecretary for Labour, whoever has to choose a training programme must evaluate the "higher technical education courses, which give 83% employability of the young people who attend them". In addition to promoting this type of higher education, for which a communication campaign will also be set up, the fund of the so-called "dual system" will be increased, combining classroom lessons with in-company apprenticeships.

"For job seekers - concluded Francesca Puglisi - we have envisaged a reform of the relocation allowance, which will be granted to a wider range of categories. The innovation is that this grant will also contain a share for training, for which we hope to replicate a model of collaboration between public and private sectors, which is already consolidated in some scenarios such as Emilia Romagna and Lombardy”. 650 million euros are allocated in the social policies fund for the entire project.
