The Province of Flemish Brabant can provide you with subsidies if you make a commitment to nature as a school. That makes you think, doesn’t it?
The grant will not exceed 80% of the actual cost of the project.
is limited to €10,000 per school or establishment per year (with a minimum of €500).
The project must add value in terms of biodiversity and education.
For example, we ask that your project provide clear added value to our coworking neighbors. These are plants and animals that, due to the dense population and fragmentation of nature in our regions, do not have it easy. See which coworking neighbors your community cherishes.
You can find all the conditions in the grant regulations.
Important! The province attaches great importance to the accessibility of the initiative to persons with disabilities. Be sure to take that into account in your nature project as well. So a good reason to invest in our educational toolbox where we want to connect young people back to nature under the guise of ‘Train the trainer’.
Has your interest been piqued? If so, please contact us.
Together we will look at how to turn a piece of lawn or paving into a Smuljungle.

Especially our new ‘Train the Trainer’ program where we focus on Geoculture and ‘sustainable by design’ teaches everyone to get back in touch with nature.
