Since its launch in 1992, the European Commission\u2019s LIFE Programme has generated a significant mass of knowledge concerning many different aspects of environmental activity. This information remains highly relevant as a learning resource for environmental stakeholders throughout the EU and in neighbouring countries.
The LIFE Nature thematic conference \u201cProtecting Europe\u2019s Nature: Learning from LIFE\u201d covered a wide range of nature conservation issues during its three day programme from November 17\u201319 2008 in Brussels. Delegates from all over Europe attended the event which focused on tools and techniques for implementing the EU birds and habitats directives and the Natura 2000 network.
The objective of the event was to discuss and codify the experience and knowledge gained during the life-time of recent projects. The thematic sessions provided a platform for a discussion on, and a dissemination of the results of, some successful projects. This will allow us to find transferable outcomes from projects and to main- stream good practice for the future implementation of LIFE+.
The programme included plenary sessions examining the past, present and future role of LIFE Nature as a tool for implementing EU nature protection/biodiversity policy. A series of workshops allowed participants to discuss \u2018best practice\u2019 approaches to practical and policy based actions targeting forest, marine, river and grassland habitats, as well as focusing on climate change and invasive alien species. Other sessions featured LIFE expe- rience in areas such as international cooperation on biodiversity protection and work addressing challenges linked to ensuring a favourable conservation status for Europe\u2019s species.
