LIFE projects make use of a range of communication tools to disseminate results and lessons as widely as possible. Brochures and leaflets can be one of the most an attractive means of promoting projects on environmental issues. The LIFE unit has selected the leaflet produced by the ECOLIGHT project in Spain (LIFE03 ENV/E/000118) as ‘leaflet of the month’ for February 2009.
This visually appealing leaflet clearly illustrates what the aims of the project, while offering an attractive way of getting the attention of stakeholders and other implementing partners.
Besides looking good, the ECOLIGHT leaflet gives useful guidelines to local authorithies on how to use a quality lighting service in urban areas and natural parks to reduce pollution impact. The leaflet is published in both English and Spanish, enabling its message to reach a wide international audience.
Step-by-step advice for project coordinators on how to present project results to a non-specialist audience is available in the LIFE leaflet template.
