A New Ecological Commitment


Immigration and environmental protection: a double investment for a sustainable future. The project includes immigrants and asylum seekers in work contexts related to sustainability and environmental restoration, stressing both the protection of human dignity and of the environment. The project uses the education, expertise, previous job experience and skills of the new migrants who are identified through specific questionnaires and subsequent interviews. Through the analysis of this data the project will identify and map skills to direct migrants towards specific professional training opportunities and qualifications in environmental management, specialising in the recovery and recycling of waste. The twofold purpose of the project is to engage migrants in a profession relevant to the market, taking them away from aid policies, through strong added value activities aimed at reducing the ecological impact of waste.
