MedTOWN in Portugal launches a subgrant to support an agroforest pilot area and time bank related activities


The Junta de Freguesia de Campolide, Portuguese partner of MedTOWN, has published a call for applications to grant a total of 10,000 euros to fund co production initiatives with Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) entities in Bela Flor, Campolide, Lisboa (Portugal).

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 the 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 Bela Flor, Campolide – Lisboa. 

The Junta de Freguesia de Campolide,partner of MedTOWN project, is piloting an agroforest area in a public space and a Time Bank, both managed on a co-productive model. The present call of proposals aims to fund activities related to these two actions, as well as activities that contribute to the development and interaction of these scope with other, such as regeneration, green economy, SSE, gender equality, youth employment, education and training.

Interested entities and organisations can present their project proposals until the 31st of May 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". The organization that is interested in the call must register in the system to access it.
