In Morocco, having completed a training of trainers’ series on the various tools and methodologies to support green entrepreneurs led by the Centre d’activités régionales pour la consommation et la production durables (SCP/RAC), the Centre des Très Petites Entreprises Solidaires (CTPES) has replicated this course and provided it for trainers from organizations participating in the Moroccan Switchers Support National Partnership.
Two 5-day face-to-face training sessions were organized in Fez and Marrakech as follows:
– 3 days of training took place in April 2021
– 2 days of training have been scheduled for June 2021
Representatives/trainers from the following organizations participated in training sessions in the aforementioned regions:
– Association des très petites entreprises
– Ecosystem Performance
– Bridge to the Future
– National Agency for the Promotion of Employment and Skills (ANAPEC)
– Office for Vocational Training and Work Promotion (OFPPT)
– Réseau Associatif pour le Développement Participatif
– Réseau Al Amal pour le secours et le développement
– Réseau des associations de développement des oasis du sud est (RADOSE)
– Association sans frontières
– City of Innovation
– Menara cluster
– Entrepreneur Network
This activity is part of SwitchMed’s Green Entrepreneurship program and is based on SCP/RAC’s recently launched platform, TheSwitchers.org, which brings together all the tools and methodologies required to develop sustainable businesses. Other training sessions will take place in Morocco in the coming months, including training for trainers from the Casablanca-Settat region, which will take place from 23 to 25/06/2021. The replication of training courses will make it possible to create a pool of Moroccan experts in green entrepreneurship to mobilize entrepreneurs and support the creation of sustainable businesses at the local level.
SwitchMed’s national partners, such as the CTPES in Morocco, are constantly working on preserving the knowledge acquired through the program and on improving the service offer in order to promote a green, circular economy in the Mediterranean.
In parallel, Morocco’s Switchers Support National Partnership has just launched its call for applications for the Green Entrepreneurship program, which aims to train 120 entrepreneurs in the ideation phase and 15 entrepreneurs in the creation phase, a major new opportunity that is being coordinated by the CTPES.
