Participation of Janez Potočnik, Member of the EC, at the 20th anniversary of the Habitats Directive and LIFE, the EU financing programme for the environment

Janez Potočnik, Member of the EC in charge of Environment, went to Aalborg to participate in the celebrations for the 20th anniversary of the Habitats Directive and LIFE, the EU financing programme for the environment.
Twenty years ago, EU Member States unanimously adopted the Habitats Directive to safeguard the most threatened species and habitats across Europe. This was in response to concerns over rapidly declining wildlife and loss of natural habitats, resulting from land-use changes, pollution and urban sprawl. To give species and habitats space to recover, the Directive set up the Natura 2000 network of protected areas and the LIFE financial instrument has provided strategic support to its development.
During his stay, Janez Potočnik visited Lille Vildmose, a Natura 2000 habitat, which is both defined as a natural habitat and a bird life preservation area. Additionally, the raised bog habitat is a candidate to become a Danish national park.
