Five projects received the ultimate accolade ('Best of the Best' project), including a LIFE Information and Communication (INF) project in Greece. For the first time, the public was allowed to vote for its favourite one of these projects. The inaugural winner of the public vote - the LIFE Community Award for Nature - was announced at the 7th edition of the annual awards ceremony for the winning projects, held in Brussels during EU Green Week earlier this year.
In addition, a further 12 projects (including three from the LIFE INF strand) were recognised as 'Best' LIFE projects for their excellent work.
All 17 exemplary projects - drawn from 13 Member States - are featured in this new publication. Together they demonstrate the significant contribution that the LIFE programme can make to nature conservation practice and policy.
