Application open until July 15th for the WeMed Award!

15 Junio 2021

The WeMed Mediterranean Sustainability Award is one of the first awards aiming to recognize an inclusive transition to sustainability in the Mediterranean. The region of the southern Mediterreanean faces an array of environmental and social challenges. Climate change, demographic growth, urbanization and increased resource consumption and waste are just a few of these challenges that require radical change to confront.

In its first edition 2021, the award seeks to identify change makers within the following categories:

  • Green entrepreneurs and start-ups with innovative and sustainable business models
  • Public authorities with initiatives promoting and supporting sustainable businesses

The sustainable business models award will recognize projects that are in their “early stage”, under 3 years old, with a reward of 10,000 €, and projects in their “growth stage”, older than 3 years, with a reward of 15,000 €.

On the other hand, the award will seek to recognize the efforts of public authorities, such as municipalities, ministries, and other public organizations that have launched successful initiatives that aid and support the development of green and circular businesses. The winning authority will receive an honorary award as well as a trade visit for its members. In order to identify the policy initiatives that could influence positively the enabling environment for sustainable businesses, the following document, developed by SCP/RAC under SwitchMed will be very enlightening.

Applications are open, and you are invited to apply to get recognition and support for your project. The award’s page, www.WeMedAward.org has all the information required to successfully go through the application process.

The WeMed Award was created and will be hosted by SCP/RAC as part of the Switchers Support Programme. The WeMed Award is a flagship initiative of the UNEP/MAP Mediterranean Strategy for Sustainable Development. The first edition of WeMed is funded by the EU through the SwitchMed Programme.
