LIFE is 30!

On 21 May 2022 the LIFE programme – the EU’s funding instrument for the environment and climate action – will turn thirty and we would like you to be part of it!  You can organise an informal event, a gathering with experts, or a cultural activity together with your local community… The choices are endless! Take a moment, get inspired and submit your action.
