The Trainings of Trainers (ToTs) continue within the framework of the SwitchMed Green Entrepreneurship Programme. Since the last sessions organised in September in Morocco and Lebanon, the Regional Activity Centre for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP/RAC) has delivered six new online trainings for Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco and Palestine.
Such trainings are essential steps for each Switchers Support National Partnership (national coalitions of public and private actors, the business support organisations [BSOs], cooperating on green business development services) as they represent the first phase of the implementation of the Green Entrepreneurship Programme. Once this cycle of four trainings of trainers is completed, the trainers will be able to transfer their knowledge to the green entrepreneurs who will be selected as SwitchMed beneficiaries and trained according to that methodology.
This training aimed at sharing knowledge on the conceptual content and the functioning of the online platform which will be available soon providing free access to the most innovative set of sustainable business development tools designed for entrepreneurs and business support organizations.
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.
