Green entrepreneurs and civil society organisations are key players in the promotion of innovative, environmental and social solutions encouraging sustainable consumption and production as well as sustainable lifestyles. The success of these sustainable innovation initiatives depends on a wide range of stakeholders. Among them, public institutions, financial players, companies and support structures can play a key role in promoting the conditions and measures that facilitate the success of green entrepreneurs and, therefore, work in the service of the public interest from countries of the southern Mediterranean. The Synergy Workshop for the Promotion of Green Entrepreneurship and Grassroots Ecological and Social Innovation in Palestine is designed to bring together key stakeholders to discuss assets, challenges and concrete measures and instruments to promote green entrepreneurship and the role of CSOs as sustainable lifestyle pioneers in their region.
The Workshop is a milestone toward the development of a White Paper that is expected to capture the views and experiences of green entrepreneurs, civil society actors and support-providing organizations on the challenges, opportunities, and strategies for the promotion of green entrepreneurship and grassroots ecological and social innovations. This workshop is organized in cooperation with the Environmental Quality Authority and the Continuing Education Centre – Birzeit University and facilitated by the Centre for Environment – Palestine.
