LIFE TECMINE project awarded at the LIFE 2023 Awards

Each year, the LIFE Awards recognize excellence in LIFE projects in three categories: nature protection, environment and climate action.

On 6 June, the European Commission revealed the winners of this year's LIFE Awards 2023. The award ceremony took place at 17:45 in the Charlemagne Building in Brussels, as part of the EU Green Week 2023, Europe's most important environmental event. 

The LIFE TECMINE project was one of the 9 finalist projects this year, being nominated in the environment category.

Among the selected projects, the public voted for their favorite project. LIFE TECMINE received a total of 3.091 votes, being the project most valued by citizens and winning the Citizen's Prize for the Best LIFE 23 Project.

The project coordinator Juan Uriol Batuecas, Head of the Forest Management Service of the Regional Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development, Climate Emergency and Ecological Transition, and the highest representatives of the Regional Ministry collected the award in Brussels.
