LDnet is a non-profit association committed to spreading the word that community-led local development is the real deal. Local development is the best way to pursue sustainable development and without engagement, all other forms of development are for the birds. We are the only non institutionally funded network that links rural, coastal and urban areas and attempts to spread innovations and learn about how things can be done better by engaging with communities. We are unique in bringing together practitioners, researchers and policy thinkers across Europe and beyond.
That’s why we need YOUR support. As an independent non-aligned NGO we can only continue if we have some modest resources. We are very frugal, but each year we have to pay for web hosting, for some conference fees and for a limited amount of travel. We are therefore appealing to our user community to support us with small donations through the HelloAsso portal. You can give as little as 10 Euros or as much as you want. You can make a one-off donation or you can donate every month. Note that HelloAsso is itself an NGO and they automatically add a donation to their website. This is strictly optional and you can decide to include their percentage in your gift to LDnet or you can opt-out. This is up to you.
