Finalist of the Euro-Mediterranean program “Rise for Change”
Liofyllo was one of the 22 finalists among 1,000+ applications in the annual Mediterranean Rise for Change Program for Social Entrepreneurship (2018-2019) organized by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (U.N.I.D.O) and the Fondazione CRT Foundation.
The Rise for Change program aims to broaden –on a global scale- the knowledge and skills of young social entrepreneurs in the field of ‘business’ and provide them with the means that will contribute to sustainable development and optimization of their existing social impact.
Recognizing that social entrepreneurs are basically the driving force for radical change, the Rise for Change program supports these youth efforts that instigate a radical shakeup in the industrial world by empowering communities and boosting economies across the Euro-Mediterranean region.
Rise for Change is a long-term mentoring and technical training program which consists of like-minded entrepreneurs and individuals to whom business venture is their second nature.
The geographical and cultural diversity of the social entrepreneurs involved in the ‘Rise for Change’ program is the cornerstone of creating a resilient, intercultural and functioning community that aims to positively influence the world, economies, and society in general.
