Land is For Ever Webinar 3: innovative European case studies of private land conservation
When? Monday, September 28, 2020.
What time? 10:00 – 11:00 (EDT) – 16:00 – 17:00 (CEST)

In the framework of this Life+ project “Land Is For Ever”, 7 successful and inspiring examples of innovative private land conservation structures in Europe were selected and further analysed.

The owners and managers of those private lands shared their experiences and lessons learned during interactive workshops.
This webinar will give you a summary and overview of those discussions. What is threatening their structure and project? How does it impact their activities? What are the opportunities they can identify in this evolving world? Key actions to survive and adapt were defined for each example and we look forward to share it amongst the community of private land conservation.

We have the chance to host two of those seven cases representatives during this webinar.

Otto von Arnold from the Tullstorp Stream Project (Sweden / Project structure - Landowners association) & Christophe Lenaerts from the NATO airfield case in Flanders (Belgium/ NGO structure) will explain the added value of the conservation tools they are using and what is the impact on their estates. There will be time for Q&A and participants are invited to interact with the speakers.

Sep 28, 2020 04:00 PM in Brussels

Speakers

Otto von Arnold
Chairman of the TSP association, landowner and farmer @Tullstorp Stream Project (Sweden / Project structure - Landowners association)
The Tullstorp Stream Project is unique in that it is operated by an association of all landowners along the stream – The Tullstorp Stream Economic Association (TSEA) in the South of Sweden. Tullstorp Stream is 30 km long and the project takes a holistic approach to the entire 6300-hectare catchment area. The project has been active since 2009 and in that time, 39 wetlands and 10 km of the stream has been restored. A total of 169-hectare wetland area have to date (October 2019) been created within the catchment area. There is still 3-4 years of restoration work left.
Christophe Lenaerts
President Landelijk Vlaanderen @NATO airfield case in Flanders (Belgium/ NGO structure)
This airport will be for sale in the near future. The project was able to bring the surrounding private owners who were expropriated for the realization of the airport together with Natuurpunt, Flanders' largest nature organization and PIDPA, a drinking water company that pumps water in the area for the drinking water supply of Flanders. Under the direction of the LIFE + project, a first cooperation agreement has been signed and the partners are jointly setting up a new NGO with the objective of purchasing and management.
