Type of partnership
We work with three different types of partners: strategic, regional and local partners
We work in strategic partnership with international and national organisations that are very experienced an active in addressing the shift to sustainable consumption and production in the Mediterranean region. Our strategic partners are likeminded organizations to facilitate the exchange of ideas, build bridges and synergies and foster cooperation among diverse organizations in different countries with shared goals.
