European LIFE program

European consortium to foster Urban biodiversity in EU cities.

The densification of major European cities has made it difficult for ecosystems to flourish.

Indeed, the reduction of green spaces and the increase in the “mineralization” of cities directly threaten flora and fauna. As a result, large cities have hindered the migration of animal species and the thriving of plant species.

EURBIODE is an ambitious program aimed at establishing good practices in the protection and preservation of biodiversity in the urban environment in major European cities.

EURBIODE offers each citizen, each company, and each institution the possibility to become an actor in the promotion of biodiversity by installing a “life capsule” at home. “Life capsules” are micro-ecosystems integrating plants and flowers for insects, pollinators, insect hotels, bird shelters, and seeds for winter food.

Thanks to a smartphone application allowing the geolocation of capsules, the observation and inventory of fauna and flora in urban areas, and finally, the inventory and reduction of risk factors (pesticides, mono-flora, bird-window collision,…), EURBIODE orchestrates all of these capsules in such a way as to create corridors of biodiversity in cities and allow insects and birds, and at the same time pollen and seeds, to pass through and flourish through towns.

The EURBIODE program requires the collaboration of civil society, companies, and city authorities to carry out these Biodiversity campaigns.

In partnership with biodiversity protection programs, citizen crowdfunding, and societal engagement platforms, EURBIODE ensures the collaboration of citizens, making each inhabitant a potential player in the ecological transition of the city.

In partnership with the chambers of commerce and business associations, EURBIODE organizes the collaboration of these companies to integrate their CSR program and provide them with the necessary information for their annual report within the framework of the EU Taxonomy.

EURBIODE integrates strategic actors from civil society who are specialists in the issues of biodiversity to create awareness, education, and training of citizens and businesses in urban biodiversity.

With this LIFE program, EURBIODE aims to prove the environmental and economic relevance of its model in 3 major European cities and then systematically offer it to players in all medium-sized and large European cities, with the aim that Europe no longer has barriers interrupting the progression of biodiversity in Europe.
