UNICEF and energy giant Iberdrola are joining forces to support project ‘Generation Unlimited Spain,’ launched by the United Nations.

The main objective of the new €3 million (£2.6m) alliance is to create net zero training and employment opportunities for vulnerable young people.

The scheme will create green jobs for the 270 million people, aged 15-24, that do not participate in education, employment or training – with females making up two-thirds of this amount.

Launching the scheme, Iberdrola’s Executive Chairman, Ignacio Galán, said: “Our alliance aims to respond to the challenge of creating employment opportunities for vulnerable young people in sectors of the future, such as clean energy. This will enable us to create a more sustainable and prosperous world for everyone.”

The three-year alliance will empower green jobs for vulnerable young people in Spain. They will also collaborate with universities and public and private sector institutes for a greener economy.
