The European Commissioner for the Environment, Fisheries and Maritime affairs Karmenu Vella, together with the high–level Jury members will reveal the winners of the 2018 edition of the prestigious European Natura 2000 Award.

This award recognises the time, dedication and efforts Europeans invested in nature protection and also showcases the role Natura 2000 plays for safeguarding our natural heritage and promoting social and economic wellbeing.

The Ceremony will offer an exciting opportunity to meet all the 2018 finalists in person and share the moment when the winners are announced. In addition, it will be possible to network with high-level Commission officials, experts from various organisations working on Natura 2000, and representatives of other stakeholders.
