Description

EMPLOIMed aimed to establish a support service for employability and entrepreneurship in M’Saken and Chefchaouen, offering spaces for co-working, information, training opportunities, and support for young people.

MedCities launched the project EMPLOIMed, financed by the Catalan Agency for Cooperation to the Development (ACCD), which aims to establish a support service for employability and entrepreneurship in both cities, offering spaces for co-working, information, training opportunities, and support for young people.
In October 2021, a first meeting with the municipalities’ team of M’Saken and Chefchaoen was organized online in order to start planning the project activities in accordance with their needs.
