On 5 and 6 June 2018, these Programmes will host a Project Lab at the European Development Days, in Brussels, where they will share stories of women green entrepreneurs from around the world who have been agents of change driving the green economy transition and creating jobs.
Project Lab title: Women Empowerment Through Green Business Development
Speakers from the respective regions will give evidence and debate with the audience on how development practitioners can leverage the role of women in green economy: what are the needs, with which means, and what benefits can be expected.
Successful examples will be showcased and a set of recommendations on engaging women in private sector investments, to green products and promote sustainable lifestyles, will be put forward.
Magali Outters, Team Leader of the SwitchMed Policy Area, will provide an insight on the policy support needed to scale-up the best practices and to especifically support women as drivers of change towards Sustainable Production and Consumption patterns.
