Climate action projects, including a zero-electricity heating and cooling system, a climate-smart farm and a resilient forest, are among twelve nominated for awards at EU Green week.
Being held across Europe from 21 to 25 May, the week will explore ways to help cities become better places to live and work. As part of this, the LIFE Awards ceremony will celebrate the most successful climate action projects.
One of the twelve nominees is the LIFE+AGRICARBON project, a set of demonstration sustainable agriculture farms in Spain reduced emissions by 19 per cent, and sequestered on average 30 per cent more CO2, as well as providing substantial savings for farmers.
