You can go to the Province of Flemish Brabant for subsidies if your school is committed to nature. Doesn’t that make you think?
The subsidy amounts to a maximum of 80% of the actual costs of the project.
is limited to 10,000 euros per school or establishment per year (with a minimum of 500 euros).
The project must have added value in terms of biodiversity and in terms of education.
For example, we ask that your project provides clear added value for our cherished neighbours. These are plants and animals that do not have it easy due to the dense population and the fragmentation of nature in our regions. See which cherished neighbors your municipality cherishes.
You will find all the conditions in the subsidy regulations.
Important! The province attaches great importance to the accessibility of the initiative for persons with disabilities. Be sure to take this into account in your nature project. So a good reason to invest in our educational toolbox, where we want to reconnect young people with nature under the guise of ‘Train the trainer’.
Are you interested? Then please contact us.
Together we look at how we can transform a piece of lawn or pavement into a Smuljungle.
