Be Planet and Elia join forces to support sustainable development in eastern Liège Province
Following on from last June's call for projects from private individuals and associations, the Be Planet foundation and Elia today presented the 13 projects that will benefit from the community support fund in connection with the second phase of the East Loop (‘Boucle de l’Est’) project.
- The thirteen projects will advance the region's biodiversity and sustainable development
- The total budget for the support is 158,000 euros, divided over the five municipalities
- The funds will be provided during the second phase of the "East Loop" project and will come from Elia's Community Support Fund
Elia has been working with the Be Planet Foundation since 2017 to develop and support grass-roots ecological transition initiatives that promote the ecological transition. Be Planet's role as a public utility foundation is to ensure compliance with the fund's general objective and with the criteria for selecting grass-roots projects. Each project supported must have a positive impact on the ecological transition and must contribute to sustainable development.
