WHAT IS BELGECO:
BelgEco aims to combine the dynamics in our country around ecological communities, rural or urban, each of which strives in their own way for greater sustainability on a social, economic, cultural and ecological level.
We do this by building a collaborative network, supported by existing and starting eco-communities and involved organizations, a network that is committed to a better world for the benefit of all living beings.
To this end, we organize activities, meetings, and training in our country, but also broader. We establish an inventory and we connect existing communities, initiatives and organizations. We also collect and disseminate information and inspiration.
