From November 5th to the 14th 2012, Jesus Iglesias from Emprendae participated in the “Training for Trainers” organized by CPRAC, as part of its efforts to spread the culture of green entrepreneurship across the southern Mediterranean basin, in collaboration with the GIZ (The German Agency of International Cooperation for Development). It was all made possible thanks to the year-long work and mediation carried out by Mourad Turki and Alessandra Bonezzi.
Starting in 2013, these activities will converge into CPRAC’s Mediterranean Program Program (MTP) on Green Entrepreneurship & Ecodesign, of which Emprendae we are part of the mentoring team, aimed at training and advising trainers as well as capacity building supporting structures (public and private). The overall goal being to boost the creation and establishment of green business in the Mediterranean countries, CPRAC has designed a strategic action plan that focuses on the development of a Mediterranean network of resources for eco-entrepreneurs, including: training and advising (MTP), access to finance, networking, inspiration through successful business cases, exchanges of good/bad practices, etc.
As usual, together with Mrs. Francesca Culcas -CPRAC’s leading project manager in the field of Green Entrepreneurship-, we were joined by our main collaborators in this project: Dr. Ramón Farreny and Dr. Jordi Oliver from Inèdit Innovació, as well as by Daniel Bernal Picazo, the intrepid photographer/videographer in charge of making a documentary that will portray CPRAC’s activities in the development of the above-mentioned network.
All in all, we must say it was a great pleasure, once again, to experience the motivation and passion the participants shared with us all across the 10-day training. And, on top of it all, being the first time we were addressing ourselves directly to entrepreneur trainers, we were able to grasp and anticipate the enormous potential this new approach offers in terms of replicating the model and effectively reaching out large numbers of eco-entrepreneurs via trainers holding the appropriate knowledge of the local context and resources.
Shukran Tunisia, see you in 2013!!
