New LIFE Programme publication by the European Commission


Publikacja KE Life tytuł

In recent days, the European Commission has published another brochure on the achievements of the LIFE Programme and its contribution to the protection of Europe’s environment and climate.

Bringing nature back through LIFE is a comprehensive overview of the most successful LIFE projects - completed or still ongoing - both in 'hard' conservation actions, as well as in 'soft' actions aimed at increasing public awareness and involvement of various actors in environmental protection. The publication also shows how the LIFE Programme works in coordination with the Natura 2000 network.

We are pleased to announce that the Local initiatives for deployment of green infrastructure within Natura 2000 sites in the Carpathians (LIFE16 GIE/PL/000648) project has been appreciated and included in the publication. It has been presented as an example of effective actions to raise awareness of the need to maintain and restore ecological connectivity in the Polish part of the Carpathians, through appropriate shaping of green and blue infrastructure.

We encourage you to read the publication, as well as visit the European Commission’s website, where you can find other materials published by the Commission on the LIFE Programme with regard to a very wide range of issues - from biodiversity, through making cities green, energy industry, to the EU strategy on plastic.


The LIFE Programme is the European Union’s main financial instrument dedicated to co-financing projects focused on environmental and climate protection.
