"The last 20 years have shown that this can only be done at the community level and with SMEs moving from the edge to the centre of green climate actions and sustainable development—thus driving green and circular economy, enhancing responsible consumption and production patterns, delivering resource efficiency and ecosystems resilience. SMEs have played a momentous role in the progress, but even after 20 years of increasing awareness about the potential of SMEs, many challenges remain," said Arab Hoballah, SEED Executive Director and host of the webinar.
The proposed agenda will include high-level speakers, which will share valuable insights about the journey of two decades supporting green enterprises, such as UNEP, Government of Flanders and German Federal Ministry of the Environment. As well as, three speakers from SEED-supported enterprises will be sharing their challenges and success stories of becoming an entrepreneur in the field of green and sustainable business.

- Steven Stone, UN Environment Programme,
