LIFE Awards 2020: celebrating the best environmental and climate action projects

The LIFE Awards recognise the most innovative, inspirational and effective projects that have been co-funded through the EU’s LIFE programme for the environment and climate action. Fifteen projects are nominated in 3 categories: nature protection, environment, and climate action. During this ceremony, the high-level jury will announce the 3 winners in these categories. In addition, the “Citizens’ prize” will be given to the finalist who receives the highest number of votes in a public voting contest.

Moreover, this year a special award will honour LIFE-funded projects that help communities in their fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

More information on the nominated projects are available on the LIFE programme website
