|European Commissionís Natura 2000 Award|
The annual award is open to any entity involved in activities related to Natura 2000. Local and national authorities, businesses, land owners, NGOs, educational institutions and individuals from all 28 EU Member States are all eligible to apply for the five award categories.
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 five category prizes, an “EU Citizen’s Award” will be introduced this year, with the public being encouraged to vote for their favourite application.
