After the signing of MedTOWN’s agreement to implement a complementary currency to promote citizen’s involvement in waste management in Beitillu village things are moving forward in Palestine: By the last week of May, the project’s National Workshop (NW) will involve 25 active participants, as part of our project’s ambitious formative programme “The Phoenix Journey: Transformative Pathways for Ecosocial Co-production”.

The importance of the training in the Palestinian National Workshop:

  • Starting from the common programme, it will focus on the waste management loop and ideas about composting, reusing & recycling, and related concepts as circular economy.
  • It will transfer to the local and national audience the knowledge gained by the local trainers in MedTOWN’s training of trainers (ToT), generating a cascade effect.
  • It will give the participants awareness about co-production and its applications, case studies and successes.
  • It will provide information on social & solidarity economy, and the opportunities they provide.
  • It will give insight about complementary currencies: how to use them, their importance & examples of applications worldwide.
  • It will help participants in choosing initiatives eligible for MedTOWN’s future pilot project’s subgranting call in Palestine & customizing them according to the project’s main goals.

MedTOWN is a cooperation project financed by the European Union through the European Neighbourhood Instrument for Cross-Border Cooperation, in the framework of the Mediterranean Sea Basin Programme (ENI CBC Med). The aim is to support the role and capacities of SSE actors in the fight against poverty, inequality, social exclusion and environmental unsustainability.
