#EyesOnBlue (2022)

Environmental issues have many components but the urgency to tackle water issues is more crucial than ever, especially at the kick-off of the dry season when more awareness, behavioral change, new habits, and a new thinking model are mostly needed.

To mark the World Environmental Day in 2022, the DG NEAR, the EU Neighbours South programme, and the SwitchMed initiative are teaming up again for the 2nd edition of its environmental contest, named #EyesOnBlue. The activity will consist of a contest covering 07 Arab countries in the Southern Mediterranean region (Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, and Tunisia) and a campaign highlighting the urgency of tackling the water issue, through a series of videos with influencers that are active or knowledgeable in the field.
