The LIFE programme was a winner in the Andalusian Environment Awards 2017, an initiative organised by the regional government of Andalusia in Spain. The awards recognise the work of individuals or organisations in dissemination and diffusion of environmental values in the region. LIFE received the award in the ‘natural values’ category, which focuses on those organisations designing and implementing projects on nature conservation and the reduction of human impacts on the environment. The LIFE programme is currently celebrating its 25th anniversary. Since the outset, LIFE has played a key role in the protection of Andalusia’s environment. The programme has invested €157 million euros in 38 projects in the region. The award was received by Ms. Dorte Pardo López, from DG Environment, on behalf of the European Commission.
