About


The Switchers is a community of inspiring green entrepreneurs and changemakers in the Mediterranean region.

Switchers are individuals, enterprises or civil society organizations implementing innovative ecologic and social solutions that contribute to a switch to sustainable and fair consumption and production. They are active in a variety of fields, including organic farming, sustainable tourism, waste management, organic textile, recycling of electronic waste, sustainable building, organic cosmetics production, among others.

As a SwitchMed community, its members benefit from a number of resources. Through the platform www.theswitchers.eu we give our members a voice to tell their stories of sustainable transformation and change. Switchers benefit from the networks and the connections of the organizations implementing the SwitchMed program, can network with each other to share knowledge or discover possibilities for collaboration, have the opportunity to participate in specialized training sessions, are invited to participate in international events, and receive a variety of other business and communication opportunities.

Most importantly, the Switchers is a community with a voice and a meeting place for people in the region who are passionate about shaping their environment towards a more sustainable future.


The Switchers platform has been developed by the Regional Activity Centre for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP/RAC) in the framework of the SwitchMed initiative.

SwitchMed is an initiative that supports and connects stakeholders to scale up eco and social innovations in the Mediterranean; our aim is to provide them with tools and connections to supporting partners for their eco and social innovations, to achieve productive, circular and sharing economies in the Mediterranean.

SwitchMed is a regional programme funded by the European Union (EU) and collaboratively coordinated by the EU, United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), United Nations Environment Programme Mediterranean Action Plan (UNEP/MAP), Regional Activity Centre for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP/RAC), and the UNEP’s Division of Technology, Industry and Economics (UNEP/DTIE).
