Fiscal Host: All For Climate

The core work of Stop Ecocide Belgium is to activate and develop cross-sector support for the recognition of the crime of ecocide.

About


Stop Ecocide Belgium is a movement that aims to include #ecocide (the massive destruction of ecosystems that is severe or systematic) in the Belgian criminal code, the European crime directive  and to support the work at international level to have ecocide recognised as a 5th crime against peace, alongside genocide. 
 
ECOCIDE is a word to describe what is happening to our planet; the mass damage and destruction of the natural living world.  It literally means “killing one’s home”.  And right now, in most of the world, no-one is held responsible.  

It’s time to change the rules.  It’s time to protect our home.

We collaborate with diplomats, politicians, lawyers, corporate leaders, NGOs, indigenous and faith groups, influencers, academic experts, grassroots campaigns, individuals and a wide network of allied groups to this end.
 

We also raise awareness so that the concept of ecocide and the need to implement the law are understood by society at large.

Contributions and Expenses
Stop Ecocide Belgium has partnered with Open Collective and the fiscal host All for Climate. Via their platform we can now easily accept contributions and reimburse expenses.

How can you contribute to End Ecocide Belgium?
If you want to support Stop Ecocide Belgium but are not in a position to offer your time or  expertise, you may want to consider a financial contribution
You can become a backer, sponsor, or make a single donation. Open Collective accepts credit card, bank transfer and Paypal.
Note that there is a “tips from contributors” amount automatically added to your donation, however this is completely up to you and you can change the amount you would like to tip. 
Should you have any questions about supporting us, please contact the finance team.

What expenses are eligible?
Funds will be used primarily to cover expenses of Stop Ecocide Belgium's volunteers campaigning for ecocide law, such as:
  • banners, materials for events like demonstrations
  • printed materials like flyers, posters, stickers
  • food and drinks for volunteers during events
  • public transport like train, bus, tram to events and meetings
  • registration fees for events or trainings
  • subscriptions like web hosting and other IT related expenses
These are just examples: when in doubt, ask the finance team.

Eligible expenses up to €25 are eligible for reimbursement without prior approval.
Eligible expenses above €25 require prior approval by the finance team.
In order to have costs reimbursed, you need some kind of proof like a receipt, bill, or invoice. Submitting an expense is pretty easy, just follow these steps.

The finance team will check and approve or reject reimbursement requests, considering the account balance and the nature of the expense. We can’t guarantee that SEB will be able to reimburse your expense, unless you check with the finance team first.
