European Green Deal Executive Vice President Frans Timmermans said: “The climate and biodiversity crises are more present than ever, but this year’s LIFE project finalists provide hope and inspiration for future solutions. Conserving natural habitats and protecting wildlife are essential to our green recovery and our journey to climate neutrality.”

Environment, Oceans and Fisheries Commissioner Virginijus Sinkevičius said: “I would like to congratulate all the LIFE Awards 2021 finalists and winners. LIFE projects are a stellar example of people working together each and every day to address the most pressing global challenges like climate change and biodiversity loss. LIFE projects combine technology, innovation, expertise, cooperation, but above all lots of dedication to deliver smart solutions. I wish you all continued success.”

An expert jury looked at the 15 finalists and chose the three winners, who all demonstrated an outstanding contribution to environmental, economic and social developments. They also showed excellence in impact, replicability, policy relevance, cross-border cooperation and cost-effectiveness. More information about the winners and other finalists can be found here.
