The European Union has today approved funding for 11 environmental projects across the UK under the LIFE+ programme, the EU's environment fund. The projects cover actions in nature conservation, climate change, environmental policy, and information and communication on environmental issues.

EU funding for these projects shows that being IN Europe is essential if we are to tackle climate change and protect our environment. The projects will make a vital contribution to preservation and conservation, and will help in achieving sustainable growth in a low carbon and resource efficient economy.
