Do you want to play a bigger role in the transition to more sustainable ways of life? Are you a civil society actor looking to develop or reinforce your projects? Looking for the technical assistance you need to turn your ideas into reality? Are you looking to meet other actors working to promote a more sustainable approach to consumption and production?

If so, you’ve come to the right place! The objective of SwitchMed is to support social and ecological innovation by Civil Society Organizations (CSO) in the Mediterranean region. We’re inviting you to get involved in the activities and support platforms which SwitchMed puts at your disposal:

You can take part in a training and supervision programme with experts in sustainable consumption and production. The objective is to develop the ecological and social innovation ideas proposed by participants. This is a unique opportunity for you to leverage the strategic know-how of SwitchMed, multiply the impact of your projects and guide them towards success. This programme is free of charge.

This programme is implemented in each of the nine countries targeted by SwitchMed (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia) and consists of an intensive 4-day workshop. In total, 180 social society initiatives will be supported. Join the programme

Of these initiatives, at least nine of the most promising ideas will receive additional technical support for several months. Find out more
