Chance for a Change
“Chance for a Change” was held in Sardinia in 2014.
The promotion of Green Skills in Sardinia was the main objective of the project granted by Fondazione Banco di Sardegna.
This project was implemented in the Olbia Tempio Province.
Following the current economic crisis in the tourism sector, much of the population aged between 18 and 32 years, especially women, at one time used at least seasonally in the tourism industry, it is unemployed or, even worse, unoccupied .
In this context it is necessary to develop new skills to guarantee the possibility of devising new forms of employment and self-employment which have to be compatible with the tourism economy that characterizes the Gallura Region.
We proposed to create new artistic and technical skills in the collection of polluting materials for the creation of “green” products (recycled) that have a real value in use (eg, lamps, storage , landscaping items , small furniture the house etc.) and a value of “artistic”.
The object then was to create and develop in recipients of second instance a set of green skills that are the necessary condition for a possible development of a processing techniques of “waste”, urban and not, thus triggering of professional competences in the context of a new green economy.
