With the recently adopted Biodiversity Strategy for 2030, the EU intends to build a Trans-European Nature Network, by enlarging the network of protected areas with an ambitious target of 30% of land and 30% of seas to be legally protected by 2030. The first legally binding targets for nature restoration will be proposed this year.

Since 1992, the LIFE programme has been instrumental in establishing the Natura 2000 network, the world’s largest multinational co-ordinated network of protected areas.

As a result, the LIFE community of nature restoration practitioners has practical experience to share on how best to select priority corridor areas to increase ecological connectivity across European landscapes, and deliver multiple benefits for nature, climate and people. Projects under the LIFE programme have piloted different governance models and funding options for ecological corridors.

During this webinar, speakers will present financing opportunities for connectivity currently available through a number of European Union funds and programmes, including: the Green Deal Investment Plan, Horizon Europe, funding under the common agricultural policy, European Regional Development Fund and Interreg Europe. Market-based mechanisms, public-private investments, corporate social responsibility and crowd-funding will be presented by an expert panel from the public, private and third sectors.


Programme and registration

This event is organised by the European Commission’s LIFE programme and will be held online. Background information as well as the registration form can be found on the event’s webpage.
