ZICLA took part in the SwitchMed Connect 2016, an annual gathering of stakeholders seeking to build synergies, exchange knowledge and scale up social and eco innovations, co-organizing the session “Entrepreneurs Track 2: Circular Economy Opportunities in the Mediterranean Cities“.
SwitchMed is an initiative that supports and connects stakeholders to scale-up social and eco innovations in the Mediterranean countries, a huge region that shares a common culture of innovation and progress based on care for the environment and the efficient use of resources. Its mission is to provide all Mediterranean stakeholders, with tools and connections to supporting partners for social and eco innovations, to achieve productive, circular and sharing economies.
SwitchMed is collaboratively coordinated by the EU, United Nations Industrial Development Organizations (UNIDO), United Nations Environment Program Mediterranean Action Plan (UNEP/MAP), its Regional Activity Centre for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP/RAC in Catalonia) and the UNEP-DTIE (Division of Technology, Industry and Economics).
