For the seventh consecutive year, BeMed is committed to supporting local actors on the ground. They are key actors through their actions of awareness, mobilization and advice, but also through their work of data collection, research of alternatives and improvement of waste management. 

In six years, BeMed has committed 1.2 million euro to fund 82 projects that are bringing about positive change in 15 countries around the Mediterranean. With the strength of this community, its experience and its good practices, BeMed renews its call for micro-initiatives! 

 Terms of the call in brief : 

  • Applications: The call will be open from 03 October 2022 to 03 January 2023. Applications can be downloaded from the BeMed website. 
  • Targeted actors: The call for micro-initiatives targets field projects led by NGOs/associations, scientific institutions, small and medium enterprises, municipalities and local authorities. 
  • Financial support: BeMed can support initiatives up to a maximum of €10,000 and requires a minimum of 25% co-financing. 
  • Duration of the initiatives: Activities should start at the earliest in June 2023 and will be implemented over 12 to 18 months. 

BeMed receives the generous support of the Didier and Martine Primat Foundation and the Aether Fund of the Foundation for Future Generations for its call for micro-initiatives.
