The Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) suports the SwitchMed initiative to speed up the shift to sustainable consumption and production patterns in the Southern Mediterranean, notably through the promotion of circular economy approaches. This initiative also supports the implementation of the Barcelona Convention and its protocols.
The Regional Activity Centre for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP/RAC) developed TheSwitchers.org, an online and free-to-use tool within the framework of SwitchMed to enable interactions among entrepreneurs, business providers, trainers, mentors and financial institutions willing to develop novel business models in the field of Green and Circular Economy.
TheSwitchers.org is particularly innovative thanks to its Toolbox, gathering a unique set of methodologies and tools for sustainable business development designed and digitalized by SCP/RAC. It also hosts the SwitchersFund and the Switchers Community platforms. A fourth section enabling users to learn about enabling policies for sustainable businesses will be displayed in the months to come.
On Wednesday 28 April, SCP/RAC will host a demonstration webinar to present the platform and enable participants to directly ask their questions. You can access the details here.
Here you can find a brochure with key information about the platform.
