The competition covers 7 countries of the Southern Neighbourhood region: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, and Tunisia. The Awards Ceremony will be held on 3rd June, in presence of the jury members and experts of choice in the fields of environment, climate change and sustainable development.
Each country is represented by 2 Switchers. The Switchers is a community of inspiring green entrepreneurs and changemakers in the Mediterranean region, developed by SCP/RAC.

Switchers are green and circular businesses implementing eco-innovative solutions that contribute to sustainable and fair consumption and production models. They are active in a variety of fields, such as sustainable farming, green construction, sustainable textiles and cosmetics, eco-tourism, renewable energy, or waste management.
