OVERVIEW OF THE PROJECT MEETING IN TANZANIA Youth going green to beat joblessness While garbage disposal remains one of the major concerns in Dar es Salaam, some countries are turning waste products into innovative opportunities for the unemployed youth. In September 2015, the beneficiary countries of the project had a planning meeting in Bagamoyo, Tanzania to discuss the implementation of the project. The beneficiaries are: CCN, Nepal, CESIE, Italy, CHECK-IN, Portugal, SES, Argentina, PiNA, Slovenia and TYCEN, Tanzania. The two-year project will focus on capacity building in the field of youth employment and green entrepreneurship. The partners of the project believe in tackling today’s high rates of youth unemployment and serious environmental issues. During the planning meeting, Chris Ndallo says that Tanzania Youth Cultural Exchange Network (TYCEN) organized a study visit to sustainable Energy and Development Centre (SEDC) located in Mbezi Juu.
