The online and free « TheSwitchers.org» platform is now available. A virtual event dedicated to the presentation of this new platform and putting special emphasis on the Toolbox will be held on 28 April.
This brand new tool was developed by the Regional Activity Centre for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP/RAC) within the framework of the SwitchMed programme to enable interactions among entrepreneurs, business providers, mentors and financial institutions willing to develop novel business models in the field of Green and Circular Economy.
TheSwitchers.org platform is particularly innovative thanks to the unique set of methodologies and tools for sustainable business development it offers through its Toolbox.
In addition to this Toolbox, TheSwitchers.org also hosts The SwitchersFund (to provide and facilitate direct funding and business support services) and The Switchers Community website (the virtual place where entrepreneurs who share a common passion for the environment can meet).
The SwitchMed sustainable consumption and production programme aims to promote a switch by the Mediterranean economies towards sustainable consumption and production patterns and green economy, including low-emission development, through demonstration and dissemination of methods that improve resource and energy efficiency. It also seeks to minimise the environmental impacts associated with the life cycle of products and services and, where possible, to promote renewable energy.
