BUSINESSMED is joining forces to reactivate the regional economy and rethink the model for growth and sustainability in the Mediterranean region in the post COVID19 recovery era. As part of its call to action’s webinar series on Building back resilience implemented in the framework of the EU-funded EBSOMED project, a first one will be held on 22 October.
The webinar "Connecting business initiatives response to COVID-19: transforming the private sector engagement through SDGs” will be an opportunity to explore how COVID-19 has disrupted businesses across the Mediterranean and the unfamiliar challenges that have come with it with a focus on the private sector’s response to crisis in a way that aligns with the SDGs.
Its objectives are to open-up the discussion with Employers and Private sector representatives on the challenges they are facing due to the COVID-19 crisis; to share key actions put in place by the private sector in response to COVID-19 in a way to connect their innovative initiatives in order to cope with the actual challenges; to bring to the fore how central the SDGs are for building organisational resilience against crisis.
Co-financed by the European Commission, EBSOMED is a 4-year project which was officially launched in June 2018 in Tunis. The project aims at boosting the Mediterranean business ecosystem and promoting inclusive economic growth and job creation, by enhancing the private sector environment and namely the Business Support Organisations in the Southern Neighbourhood countries.
