CHARLEROI, 24 May 2024 – As a responsible stakeholder, Brussels South Charleroi Airport is keen to reiterate its commitment to working with regional organisations keen to promote the airport’s values. That’s why it is launching a call for projects based on 5 strategic areas: sustainable development, health, helping young people, culture and sport, the first three of which will be the focus for the initial 2024 phase. 

This year, Brussels South Charleroi Airport will be working closer than ever before with organisations active in the region. This fits in perfectly with one of its values: commitment. Today, it is launching a call for projects, with a view to offering financial support for implementing practical initiatives at a regional level for the benefit of sustainable development, health, young people, culture and sport. For this first phase, the focus will just be on the first three areas. BSCA would like to work alongside societal stakeholders on projects that best represent our values, to be chosen by a panel of judges according to objective, transparent criteria.

“It is really important for BSCA to work alongside regional organisations and support projects in such important areas as young people, health, sport, culture and sustainable development”, explains Philippe Verdonck, CEO of Brussels South Charleroi Airport. “We would like to take part in and support regional initiatives whose symbolism and values fit in with the airport’s DNA”.

In practical terms, organisations based in the Charleroi region will be able to submit their application by post or by email no later than 30 June 2024. The projects proposed in 2024 must focus on one of the 3 strategic areas chosen for this year: sustainable development, health and support for young people. A short list will be drawn up according to the eligibility criteria for the sustainable development goals for UNITAR certification (1). The projects selected will then be presented to the judges. The winners will be announced in October 2024. They will be awarded financial support, worth a total of 50,000 euros divided between the different projects, as well as some great publicity. BSCA is also committed to helping them bring their projects to fruition.
