Applications to the European Natura 2000 Award 2024 are open until 29 September 2023! The Natura 2000 Award provides a unique opportunity to showcase nature conservation success stories. The Award celebrates excellence in the management of Natura 2000 sites in five categories: Conservation on Land, Marine Conservation, Working Together for Nature, Cross-Border Cooperation and Communication. Any public or private organisations involved in managing Natura 2000 sites across the European Union can apply – from national authorities and environmental NGOs, to businesses, farmers, hunters and landowners, education institutions to media organisations, even individuals. Applications can be submitted in all official EU languages via the Award website. Finalists and Winners receive a Social Media Training and an invitation to the Award Ceremony in Brussels. Winners receive a small contribution to support their conservation efforts and to celebrate the Award at home with local stakeholders. Do you have questions on the Award? Contact the Secretariat via firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Natura 2000 network protects a wide array of threatened habitats and species across the European Union. The people and organisations protecting and managing the network deserve to be recognised for their efforts. The Natura 2000 Award was launched with this aim: to celebrate these Natura 2000 heroes and bring them into the spotlight.
