    BEACON - Croissance durable: l’emploi grâce à la bioéconomie

    31/03/2014

    West Wales and the Valleys – Royaume Uni

    Le projet BEACON cherche des solutions pour faire face à un défi majeur pour l'Europe et le monde entier: le développement de technologies innovantes pour répondre à la demande croissante d'énergie et de ressources. Le projet se concentre sur le bio-raffinage: un processus qui transforme des plantes "non alimentaires" en produits d'utilisations, sans l'utilisation de combustibles fossiles polluants. En produisant des produits renouvelables issus de la biomasse, BEACON offre une alternative écologique aux combustibles fossiles polluants et aide l'Europe à réduire ses émissions de gaz CO². BEACON aide également les entreprises à commercialiser les produits issus de leurs recherches à grande échelle. Cette initiative pionnière attire maintenant des investissements de partout dans le monde vers une des régions rurales les plus pauvres du Royaume-Uni. Ainsi, elle aide également à la création d'emplois, vitaux pour contribuer à la croissance de cette région.

    Fifteen Cornwall - Croissance inclusive: créer de l’emploi pour les jeunes générations

    31/03/2014

    Une passion pour la cuisine transforme la vie des jeunes dans l'une des régions les plus pauvres de l'Angleterre. Inspiré par le célèbre chef Jamie Oliver, Fifteen Cornwall est plus qu'un restaurant: il s'agit ici d'une entreprise sociale qui offre une chance aux jeunes défavorisés, âgés de 16 à 24 en leur offrant la possibilité de se former à l'art de la cuisine. Cette initiative innovatrice a formé près de 130 jeunes, dont nombreux faisaient face à de graves problèmes tels que la toxicomanie, la maladie mentale, un passé criminel ou un handicap. 89 des élèves de Cornwall ont obtenu leur diplôme comme chefs et plus de 90% sont encore employés comme chef aujourd'hui. Chaque année, le projet investit environ 1,2 million d'euros dans l'économie locale et contribue ainsi à la création d'emplois dans le secteur touristique de la région.

    Georgina MacLeod, the O4O project

    13/06/2012Testimonial of Georgina MacLeod about the O4O project. People in the EU are living longer than ever, and the proportion of the population aged over 55 is growing all the time. In some rural areas on the fringes of northern Europe, many pensioners live by themselves, and risk becoming isolated and marginalised if public transport and other services are not available and they cannot afford special care. In these remote regions, skilled staff, such as carers and nurses, are often hard to recruit and retain. The O4O project – Older people for Older people – co-financed by the European Union, responded to this challenge, using existing skills and experience within ageing communities. O4O shows older people how they can take responsibility for providing the services they need, and organises support across rural Scotland, Finland, Greenland, Northern Ireland and Sweden. At a time when public spending is under pressure in many parts of the EU, the project demonstrates how vital networks and facilities can be maintained in a way that also encourages older people to stay active and make an important contribution to society. Winner of the RegioStars 2012 Award, Inclusive Growth category

    Trixie Neilson from GRaBS project

    13/06/2012Testimonial of Trixie Neilson from GRaBS project. Urban areas are particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. To enable European towns and cities to adapt successfully to the challenges of extreme weather and warming temperatures, and to achieve sustainable growth, local people need to be consulted and actively involved in improving their environment. The GRaBS project – Green and Blue Space Adaptation for Urban Areas and Eco-towns – focused on ‘green’ open spaces and ‘blue’ water resources. Trees and grasslands, for example, help to lower temperatures in towns, through evaporation. The project worked with local communities, helping them to improve their own environment and create healthier, safer and more pleasant living spaces for everyone. Winner of RegioStars 2012 Award - SUSTAINABLE GROWTH category

    In this video story, Richard Wynn-Ellisan, an engineering student at Llandrillo College in north Wales, tells us how he discovered and joined the Bridge Marine Science Group, supported by the EU as part of the GEMS project (Growth in Environmental Marine Science) and co-funded through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). This experience has enabled him to gain a foothold in the professional sector without waiting until the end of his studies, when he hopes eventually to set up his own wholesale fishing business in the region.
