Towards productive, circular and collaborative economies in the Mediterranean

28 October, 2015 — 30 October, 2015

SWITCH-Med Action Network Event 2015


SWITCH-Med Action Network is an alliance supporting resource efficiency and eco-innovation as strategic axis for a circular and competitive Mediterranean economy. We are committed to promote a market of products and services with environmental and social added-valued.


Our Action Network is made up of businesses, professionals, entrepreneurs, service providers, business intermediaries, retailers, designers, investors, public administrations, development agencies, civil society organisations and experts. We will come together at smaller country events and at one big networking event in 2015.


How will we interact & exchange?


• There will be 6 parallel tracks each focusing on the role of specific actors that we call SWITCH-Med corners.
• We will co-create and co-organise each track with our SWITCH-Med strategic partners. Some of our sessions will focus solely on facilitating synergies between the on-going SWITCH-Med actions.
• Our 4 key economic sectors include food and agriculture, goods manufacturing, tourism, and housing and construction.
• A range of facilitation & learning techniques (i.e. World Café, Open Space, PechaKucha, Matchmaking, Networking App, Experimental Theater and Learning Labs) will be used by strategic partners and session moderators.


At the event, we will also host an Award on Eco-design funded by the Catalan Government and that will include a Euro-Mediterranean category to which companies, professionals and entrepreneurs from the region will be able to submit their proposals.
