International network

From France, the New Patrons initiative has emerged in other European countries and beyond. The first projects in Belgium began in 2002, followed by Italy, Germany, Spain and Switzerland in 2014. Over the years, an ever-expanding international network of projects has been established, now stretching from Finland to Cameroon and from Chile to Poland. To date, more than 400 projects have been commissioned by citizen groups in 15 different countries.
