Setting up a ‘mobile social grocery’ where users will pay a low price for products, and may also choose free products, improving accessibility, reducing iscolation and giving families a more ‘human’ experience.
Projects & Practice
This pan-Slovenian project is designed to combat the consequences of natural disasters that have affected forests across the country in the last six years. The project includes sustainable measures to restore damaged forests, adapting them to climate change, and is focused on areas that are under the greatest pressure.
This project combined state-of-the-art sensoring techniques and models with a participatory monitoring process with farmers and water authorities to create a common understanding of the main local challenges and possible solutions to enhance water quality. In addition, the process empowered individual farmers to become equal partners with water authorities as they gained knowledge and access to data. Problems with water management differ between regions, but the process of jointly collecting, learning from and acting on data can be applied across regions.

Setting up an EIP Operational Group that aims to enable Flemish farmers to operate small-scale anaerobic digesters more efficiently.
Using biomass residues to produce a fertiliser, which is then used to grow trees, and will, over time, improve soil quality, has led to significant financial savings for nature conservation organisations and tree nurseries.
Planting new woodland under a scheme in a partnership between Forestry services, a local authority and the local community.
