THREE DAYS TO MOBILIZE AROUND CONCRETE SOLUTIONS
The MedNC network in 2018 represents 26,000 young people and 100 partner centers in eight countries: Algeria, Egypt, Spain, France, Lebanon, Morocco, Portugal and Tunisia.
The first two days of the conference were devoted to the strengthening of the network’s member structures’ competences thanks to very specific training designed to meet their needs (cross-cutting competences, guidance and access to employment, integration surveys, mobility, and development of partnerships), as well as the discovery of eight innovative socio-professional integration measures based in Marseille : Acta Vista, EPIDE, E2C de Marseille, Massajobs, Mission Locale, Passerelles Numériques, Simplon, Skola, and RMEI.
A third day was proposed to stakeholders in order to present best practices in the field of socio-professional integration outlined in a first guidebook. The focus was also placed on the prospects of the project being extended, in particular by encouraging public authorities to support convincing initiatives and appropriate them for themselves. The conference brought together 80 people, including representatives from ministries, local authorities, experts, and corporate foundations, such as the Nexans Foundation, Total Foundation and Fondaher. It was closed by the institutional partners of the MedNC network – the French Development Agency, the Drosos Foundation and the Union for the Mediterranean – which all confirmed their support for the network.
