The MedTOWN project in Palestine opens a call for proposals to grant initiatives for pilot projects in waste management


The Palestinian partner of MedTOWNproject, Palestinian Agricultural Association (PARC), has published a call for applications to grant a total of 60,000 euros to fund co production initiatives with Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) entities in Beitillu - Ramallah (Palestine).

The aim of the call is to support co-production initiatives that address poverty, inequality and social exclusion in collaboration with a Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) entity and a local public authority. The objective is to prove that the co-production model delivers better quality social services and makes public spending more effective and efficient. 

Entities within the spectrum of the SSE sector, which have the specific characteristic of producing goods, services and knowledge while pursuing economic and social objectives and fostering solidarity, can apply. The pilot projects must be located in Beitillu - Ramallah. 

With the support of the Municipality of Beitillu, PARC will pilot the introduction of a circular waste collection model in 100 households with the separation, collection and processing of organic waste. The present call of proposals aims to fund activities related to waste management and composting, as well as activities that contribute to the development of green economy and SSE, gender equality, youth employment, education and training.

Interested entities and organisations can present their project proposals until the 2nd of April 2023 to apply for funding. The application form, rules of the call and needed documents can be downloaded from "The Mediterranean Lab for Co-production of Social Innovation". There will be an awareness session on 8th of March 2023 at 10.00am Palestine time in the Village council
