These nine projects have been shortlisted for the “Citizen’s Award” by a panel of National Contact Points.
The winning project was rewarded during the LIFE Awards ceremony on 16 May 2019, as part of the EU Green Week 2019, Europe’s biggest environmental event.
PANNONICSK restored inland salt marshes and sand dunes by the Danube in Slovakia. By the end of the project, several key species had returned and nearly half of the sand dunes had recovered. Over 20% of the salt marshes are now in a favourable condition. The project is also recognised for its excellent cooperation with local farmers and communities.
