Natura 2000 Awards: Call for entries
The call for applications for the 2018 edition of the Natura 2000 Awards is now open.
Find out more from the Natura 2000 Awards webpage including application details, guidance documents and an explanation of how to participate in the exciting award ceremony.
The awards are designed to reward excellence in the management of Natura 2000 network sites. The aim is to demonstrate how the network works and to showcase its added value for local economies.
The Natura 2000 network is ensuring the long-term survival of Europe's most valuable and threatened species and habitats, and is the centrepiece of the EU's nature and biodiversity policy. The network covers almost a fifth of Europe’s land area and an important part of the surrounding seas, making it the largest coordinated network of conservation areas anywhere in the world.
Visit the previous Natura 2000 Awards winners from 2016, 2015 and 2014 to find out more about their impressive achievements. The 2018 awards promise to be every bit as exciting and inspirational as the previous editions.
If you plan to enter the competition, remember the deadline for applications is the 29 September 2017.
The eventual winners will be announced at a high level ceremony in Brussels in May 2018.
Good luck to all applicants!
