The LE:NOTRE Institute operates with the help of voluntary contributions from its supporters. Supporters, make an annual contribution to support the work of the Institute. Fees are depending on your country of origin and status (student, young or senior professional) and valid for one calendar year. Regardless of when you are becoming a supporter your membership will expire at the end of the calendar year and has to be renewed annually.
Why does the LE:NOTRE Institute need financial contributions?
The reason is simple: organising the LE:NOTRE Institute and programming the website costs money. Until the end of November 2013 we were co-financed by the European Union by some €200,000 annually. We can no longer continue without any income to pay for the core team. Without a core team to undertake the basic tasks, things would very soon come to a standstill and everything we have achieved since 2002 would be quickly lost.
Asking individuals for a modest annual contribution seems to be the simplest and fairest way to fund the work of the Institute. In this way, we will also not be competing with institutional memberships of other organisations.
It goes without saying that, as before, all board members and other contributors continue to work on an honorary basis.
Because we believe that the supporters’ fee should be both affordable and fair, it is difficult to expect everyone to pay the same. As a result, our fee structure takes into account both where you live and your professional status. So, for example, a student from Macedonia will pay only a fraction of the fee of a senior professional from Luxembourg.
We have used information published by the European Union to compile the country bands for supporters’ fees, and these also include most countries outside the EU.
Fees are valid for one year. When you are becoming a supporter your membership will expire after a year and you have actively to renew it (unless your organisation is an institutional ECLAS-member).
Here you can find the participation fees of the upcoming landscape forum in Tartu.
