Our AGAPE project is only a few months old, and yet, it already received a prestigious Magna Grecia award.
The Magna Grecia Award is supported by the European Commission, the region of Puglia (Italy) and many other local sponsors and supporters. The Magna Grecia Awards recognizes itself in the universal values of this ancient Mediterranean civilization: democracy, freedom, tolerance, dialogue and solidarity among men. It is first of all, a cultural project, a container of shared reflections that wants to trigger a moral and cultural revolution by promoting sustainable and human-sized lifestyles. It fights the standardization, the sterile conformism and the lack of participation to launch a new season of cultural and value revival.
And our AGAPE project certainly meets these criteria. The Magna Grecia award was received for the first EU platform that matches in real-time, skills, new sustainable jobs, education, and a new, engaging sense of work, in the aquaculture and fishery sector, with 100.000 new reskilling paths and jobs by 2025.
It was received on behalf of all partners of the project by Milena Marzano and Luca Ottomanelli from the Italian B-corporation Milccop and Michela Cariglia from Consorzio Gargano Pesca.
