The second objective is to inspire the stakeholders on promising cases, create connections and synergies and facilitate an exchange on challenges and opportunities for scaling them up. The focus will be on priority sectors including food, tourism, housing and construction, fashion and textiles as well as waste management. The SwitchMed Connect (www.switchmed.eu) planned to gather Mediterranean stakeholders working in the field of environmentally sustainable economy in October 2015 in Barcelona is seen as the perfect opportunity for visibility, dissemination and exchange on promising cases.
