Date Released: Tuesday, June 6, 2017
Congratulations to BurrenLIFE, winners in the Nature and Biodiversity category at the Green Awards ceremony in Brussels on 30 May. The Burren Programme is a pioneering agri-environmental programme which aims to conserve and support the heritage, environment and communities of the Burren. Outstanding LIFE projects from the programme's 25-year history were celebrated at the Awards. A total of 15 projects were selected as finalists for the hotly contested awards by an expert jury, who looked at their long-term sustainability, communication potential and broader impact on a national, European or global level. Projects were also assessed for innovation, transferability, environmental benefits and improvement of conservation status. The winners were then chosen by public vote on Facebook.
