The initiative is divided into two phases. In the first phase, a market study was carried out to analyse the current situation of Green Employment in the Community of Madrid and the profile of young people in vulnerable situations through surveys of companies and training centres in the sector. In the second phase, employment opportunities for young people and vulnerable groups in the green economy were identified, training workshops were held on waste managementand installation of water meters, among others, and candidates were accompanied throughout the internship and job placement process in collaboration with companies participating in the hub. The aim is to have people qualified in the main trades linked to Green Jobs and to achieve their full integration. To achieve this, the hub has alliances with training centres, public administrations, social entities and companies.

Objective: to reach 3,000 direct beneficiaries and more than 5,000 people indirectly in two years.
