EU reveals LIFE Awards 2022 winners

Today, the LIFE Programme announced the five winners of the annual LIFE Awards at a ceremony held during EU Green Week - Europe’s key environmental event.



LIFE Award for Nature:

  • LIFE-KEDROS - enhancing the conservation status and resilience of cedar forests at risk from climate change in Cyprus 

LIFE Award for Environment:

  • Clean Sea LIFE – an awareness-raising project to reduce marine litter along Italian coasts 

LIFE Award for Climate Action:

  • LIFE VinEcoS - boosting biodiversity on vineyards in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany, to make them more climate-resilient


The LIFE Citizens’ Prize saw the public vote for their preferred project online.

Clean Sea LIFE won the popular vote for its awareness-raising actions that helped reduce marine litter along Italian coastal areas.


The LIFE and Natura 2000 award went to the LIFE to alvars project. The team restored 2 500 hectares of alvar grassland in Estonia – roughly 25% of the global total – by removing woodlands and forests that developed spontaneously on these sites.
