Biodiversity Conference and European Bee Award Ceremony
The European Biodiversity Conference is an annual high level conference organized by the ELO since 2010. The conference gathers land managers, landowners, policy makers, NGOs and industry representatives to discuss the participation of land users and land managers in the protection of biodiversity, as much as agro businesses and industries, from different angels.
Every year the conference hosts the Belleuropa Award that honors a Wildlife Estate Label territory which has realized an important step forward to maintain, protect or improve land for the benefit of biodiversity, using agri-environmental measures and achieving significant results from an environmental point of view.
The Conference will be followed by the European Bee Award Ceremony (4 pm - 4.45 pm) which aims to reward innovative projects protecting pollinators. This ceremony will reward the three winners of this year's contest.
