(16 December 2015) – Coproduced by AEIDL, a new publication from the LIFE programme highlights the achievements of the most outstanding Nature, Biodiversity and Information & Communication projects that were completed before the end of last year.
107 LIFE Nature, Biodiversity and Information & Communication projects ended in 2014. Five of them received the ultimate accolade (‘Best of the Best’ project).
For the first time, the public was allowed to vote for its favourite one of these projects.The inaugural winner of the public vote – the LIFE Community Award for Nature – was announced at the 7th edition of the annual awards ceremony for the winning projects, held in Brussels during EU Green Week earlier this year.
In addition, a further 12 projects were recognised as ‘Best’ LIFE projects for their excellent work.
All 17 exemplary projects – drawn from 13 Member States – are featured in this new publication. Together they demonstrate the significant contribution that the LIFE programme can make to nature conservation practice and policy.
