The latest episode of the Euronews Real Economy magazine focuses on Europe’s Green Deal and what that could mean for our jobs and the economy.
The EU's ambitious Green Deal initiative aims to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. It also pledges to transform Europe’s economy into a sustainable one, across the board from production to consumption. One of its key missions is to boost the efficient use of resources, minimise waste and cut greenhouse gas net emissions to zero.
Over the next seven years, the European Social Fund, which is now called the European Social Fund PLUS (ESF+), is investing over €88 billion.
This includes signficant investment to help create new eco-friendly jobs, support educational opportunities and train people in new skills. With tens of thousands of projects across Europe, the ESF+ aims to give a helping hand to the EU's green goals and facilitating Europe's transition to a green and digital economy.
