FEMISE and ANIMA continue their webinar series with the fifth episode of THE NEXT SOCIETY #NOWANDLIVE
Aiming to slow climate change and adjust to the damage of human impact on the environment, the rapidly growing field of green technology is expected to bring the promise of a healthier planet and changes in daily life. As a keystone of Green Economy, it is a critical component to foster cost-efficient, low-carbon and socially-inclusive economic growth that enables countries to meet the present ecological challenges without damaging or exhausting natural resources and jeopardizing the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. In the presence of significant ecological threats such as water scarcity, air pollution and inadequate waste management, sustainable economic development becomes one of the main challenges confronted by South Med countries. As indicated by the Environmental Performance Index (EPI), the national environmental performance of the region imposes improvement.
Furthermore, it is worth noting that the COVID-19 pandemic has taken preeminence over the environmental and sustainable targets adding challenges of immediate priority. At the same time, South Med small and medium size enterprises (which account for a minimum of 95% in total enterprises) also face a multitude of restraining challenges such as lack of knowledge and culture about environmental challenges in the societies and insufficient adequate finance, technical, informational, educational, and legal support. However, despite these barriers to reach both socio-economic development and environmental resilience, South Med countries have recently started to dynamically advance special programs stimulating Green tech initiatives in energy, water and resource-efficient solutions as well as consistent technical support. This creates potential opportunities for youth who can embrace innovation and change to apply their entrepreneurial potential locally using knowledge and creative capacity without having to depend on big investments.
With this fifth episode on Green Tech, ANIMA and FEMISE continue their webinar series “THE NEXT SOCIETY: NOW AND LIVE!” to explore from three different angles – at the policy level, with intermediary organizations and on the start-up scene– the situation of this sector in the region.
Looking forward meeting you on June 14 at noon [GMT+0] and remember to check your timezone !
