Objetivos Resultados Acciones


  • Promote mitigation and adaptation strategies for the new scenario of climate change for the agriculture and forest sector in Galicia.


  • Drive the participation of professionals of the Galician agriculture and forest sector in developing a strategy of adaptation to climate change.


  • Inform and raise awareness of students about the importance of maintaining a multifunctional agriculture in Galicia and about the relation that this strategically important activity in our region has with the environment, its contribution to climate change and the possible solutions it can provide.


  • Promote the use of renewable energies in the agriculture and forest sector.


  • Foster the agriculture of conservation.


  • Foster agroenergetic crops in Galicia.


  • Strengthen the use of biofuels in the agriculture and forest sector.


  • Offer alternative waste management in the agriculture and forest sector.


  • Foster saving of energy and energetic efficiency in the agriculture and forest sector.


  • Create an inventory of the Galician regions most sensitive to climate change and promote protection programes for those regions.




  • The results derived from these first activities and projects will be the base for later evaluations of impacts and they'll supply the necessary information to energize the participation of those in charge and involved in the agriculture and forest sector in order to define possible options of adaptation facing climate change. In short the project's final results are:
  • Improve the exchange of information and resources between the agents involved in the sector: administration, farmers, technicians, investigators. Promote local participation in rural Galicia. There will be 29 meetings with the 46 representatives of the "Agreement of Collaboration", of which reports will be obtained which will constitute the final documents: "Strategy to mitigate climate change in the agriculture and forest sector", "Strategy to adapt to climate change in the agriculture and forest sector".


  • Promote an attitude change in certain behaviours of farmers, live stock farmers and students with the realization of 41 conferences with 1800 attendants, 50 editions of the travelling exhibition and 2 participations in the International Fair "Semana Verde de Galicia" with a total of 50.000 visitors, 20.000 visits to the web page, 7.400 queries in the Life + environmental consulting office which will benefit the following:
  • Increase in the consumption of biofuels in the farming of the agriculture and forest sector.
  • Increase in the surface of solar panels installed on farms, thermic as well as photovoltaic.
  • Decrease in water consumption.
  • Increase in the surface dedicated to agroenergetic crop.
  • Decrease in the use of nitrogen-based fertilizers / Increase in the use of organic fertilizers.
  • Increase in the concentration of carbon in farm soil (reincorporation of organic material into the soil).
  • Increase in forest plantation (drains carbon).




  • The project "CHANGING THE CHANGE". will develop four types of actions:
  • Preparatory actions that consist of activities for the realization of the project's initial diagnosis.


  • Actions of raising awareness that consist of specific activities of information and raising the awareness of the beneficiaries.


  • Actions of diffusion and communication that include the propagation of the project's events.


  • Actions of monitoring and evaluation of the events that have already taken place.
  • The actions will be divided in activities that will develop as detailed operative measures (conferences, stands at environmental fairs) and transverse measures for all of the project (travelling exhibition, material of publication).

    The following tools for the use of the beneficiaries will be created within the project: web page, Life + environmental consulting office, as well as specific tools to monitor and control the project (diagnostic surveys, verification of environmental indicators, "eco-mailbox", intermediate reports, Layman report).

    The following systems of publication and communication will be ready to assist the events: press conferences, web page, instant information service by sms, publications in print media specialized in the agriculture sector.

    To establish structures of coordination and information there will be "agreements of collaboration" including: panel of experts, panels of members of the public administration, farmers and live stock farmers, regional technicians, networks of contact of national and transnational LIFE-projects.

    The project's beneficiaries are: students of urban and rural areas, Galician farmers and live stock farmers, advisors.
