Local BD SKILLS training course in Flanders

Training-course-Flanders(8)The local training `How to plan for nature’ took place in Genk (Province of Limburg), Flanders, on 31 January 2013 and was organized by project partner Natuurpunt Educatie in close cooperation with Centrum Duurzaam Groen, Vlaamse Landmaatschappij, De Wijers and the Province of Limburg.

The 50 participants were first given introductory lessons before embarking upon the planning exercise in working groups. The discussions were very animated and provided the participants with new insights on opportunities to work with nature in local planning processes.
