LIFE Awards 2022 - special 30th anniversary edition

With the participation of  Virginijus Sinkevičius, Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries

The session recording:


In 2022, LIFE, the EU funding instrument for the environment and climate action, celebrates 30 years of success. Since its launch in 1992, LIFE has co-financed more than 5500 projects that have contributed to the implementation, updating and development of EU environmental and climate policy and legislation.

The special, anniversary edition of the LIFE Awards will recognise the most innovative, inspirational and effective LIFE projects in the fields of nature protection, environment and climate action. Winners from each of these 3 categories will be voted by expert jury members and announced on the day of the Ceremony. A fourth category is set for the LIFE Citizens’ Prize, where people will vote for their favourite project among all 12 finalists through a dedicated online voting platform. A special honour will be paid to successful LIFE projects, implemented in the Natura 2000 network.
