ARLEM launches a call for applications to elect the young Mediterranean entrepreneur of the year 2022

The Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) supports this prize and is part of the jury.

The young local entrepreneur in the Mediterranean will be chosen on November 28, 2022 during Mediterranean Day and on the sidelines of the next plenary session in Arlem.

The winner of the award will succeed Erilda Krasi, director of the Albanian tour operator 1001 Albanian Adventures in Berat (South-Central Albania), who won the award in February 2021. Her company was cited as “an example of sustainable and responsible tourism that contributes to the regeneration of the local economic fabric and the urban environment”.

The other four finalists were the Palestinian company Blue Filter (natural wastewater treatment filters), the Moroccan agricultural cooperative Golden Africa (production and sale of argan oil and derived cosmetic and food products) and the two Algerian companies Second Life (water production and distribution as well as waste management for depollution) and Solec (installation of photovoltaic panels and production of LED streetlights for public lighting).

Launched in 2010 by the European Committee of the Regions (CoR), following an announcement in November 2008, the Euro-Mediterranean Regional and Local Assembly brings together local and regional elected representatives from the European Union and its Mediterranean partners.
