Calls for Proposals

BESTbelt aims at unlocking the local potential along the European Green Belt by providing financial resources and consultation on how to effectively implement actions. With the BESTbelt Calls for proposals local stakeholders have the opportunity to implement activities to protect, restore and sustainably use natural resources along the European Green Belt.

The BESTbelt Calls for proposals are organised in two steps. Applicants submit a concept note for their projects and if it is successful they will be invited to submit a full proposal.
