The European Commission has just launched an online public consultation to gather views on the next financial instrument for the environment, to succeed LIFE+ in the period 2014-2020. We welcome your opinions on its objectives, priorities and support modalities. This online consultation is one part of a wider public consultation, whose responses will be taken into account in the European Commission's proposal for a new instrument.
We welcome contributions from national, regional and local administrations, environmental stakeholders, the private sector, and the general public. Please participate in this discussion as this is your opportunity to put your views across and help shape the only financial instrument exclusively dedicated to improving the environment.
The consultation is in the form of a series of 19 questions, and you also have the possibility to give your opinions and suggestions. It is open until the end of January 2011.
Full information on the current LIFE programme can be found on the LIFE website
