The European Commission’s Natura 2000 Award, which honours leading nature conservation achievements, has announced its fifth edition.

The call for applications will be open until 30th September 2019.  
The Award is open to any entity involved in activities related to Natura 2000. Local, regional and national authorities, businesses, land owners/users, NGOs, educational institutions and individuals from all EU Member States are eligible to apply for the five award categories: Conservation, Communication, Socio-economic benefits, Reconciling interests/perceptions and Cross-border cooperation and networking.

The Natura 2000 Award is dedicated to rewarding excellence in the management and promotion of the network and its objectives, and to raising awareness about Natura 2000 and its benefits to European citizens. To this end, in addition to the prizes for five categories attributed by an experts jury, an “EU Citizens’ Award” goes to the application receiving the highest number of preferences through an open public vote on the Award website.
