The European Commission has launched the 6th edition of the European Natura 2000 Award. This edition includes a new category for Marine conservation which focusses more on the conservation of marine and coastal areas. The Award raises awareness on Natura 2000, the work carried out by different organisations and individuals to safeguard these vital natural assets, and the health, cultural, societal and economic benefits the network provides to us all, as well as its value in its own right.
Applications are open for the Award until 30 September and the Award Ceremony will take place around Natura 2000 Day in May 2022.
Further information and registration are available on the event page.
