12bn/year on greening: the results?
This is the amount that is spent every year on measures in agriculture that should benefit the biodiversity (so-called greening measures).

In the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), the 30% of direct payments under Pillar 1 are dedicated to farmers who implement the greening […]
WE CALCULATED OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
We all have a carbon footprint to offset – we did it during our Academy event in October.

We call for a reformed EU budget which serves sustainability while increasing well-being. Such an EU budget does not […]
Green-Go winners: advocating change
Short films are creative, effective and fun way to ask for changes in policies that affect our everyday lives. This year’s winning films are sending clear messages by raising awareness about burning issues (such as about endangered European species) or by offering solutions (recycling and upcycling, getting back to small-scale agriculture). The winning short film of […]
We found the prettiest green roof!
Photograph of Praça de Lisboa (Lisbon square) in Portugal by Paolo Palha, the founder of Landlab, is the winning photo of the Green Roof Beauty Contest. “This green roof is an amazing example of the opportunities that we all have in the world’s capitals! It’s only a matter of people’s will, of informed politicians and of technical ability. We […]
