About

TheSwitchers.org belongs to The Switchers Support Programme, an initiative which contributes to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its SDGs by creating and enhancing sustainable businesses.

In order to create an enabling ecosystem for sustainable enterprises, through The Switchers Support Programme we work closely with green and circular entrepreneurs and companies, business support organizations, trainers and mentors, financial institutions, policy-makers and other relevant stakeholders.

In Mediterranean countries, we set up National Partnerships gathered under a common community of practices Business Support Organizations which targets sustainable entrepreneurs and companies.

They are active in a variety of fields, including organic food, renewable energy, waste management, sustainable tourism, organic textile, sustainable building, organic cosmetics, and sustainable mobility, among others.
