Natura2000Spotlight

Do you wish more people knew about Natura 2000, the network of protected areas in Europe? Do you have a good idea to raise awareness about it? Then apply to develop your project idea with the LIFE Belgium for Biodiversity (LIFE B4B) project.  

 

LIFE Belgium for Biodiversity is a strategic project for nature funded by the European LIFE programme. The project lasts from 1 January 2023 to 31 December 2031. 14 partners collaborate across Belgium to boost biodiversity and increase the resilience of the Natura 2000 network.  

Promoting Natura 2000 is one of the aims of LIFE Belgium for Biodiversity. To achieve this, we rely on everyone's support.  

We want to promote the Natura 2000 network to the public and show them what Natura2000 is about. That's why we have been working with the LIFE Belgium for Biodiversity project partners on a branding strategy in recent months. This will help us communicate the vision and mission of Natura 2000, and make Natura 2000 visible and identifiable on site and in general communication. The main goal of clear branding is to increase awareness of the unique ecological values in Natura 2000 sites and to foster higher stakeholder and public engagement.  

Each approved project proposal can receive a grant of up to €15 000.

We welcome you to share your project idea if you have a creative way to raise public awareness of the Natura2000 network.
