Scotland’s Environment Web, a website that aims to be a ‘one-stop’ resource to access a variety of information resources on the Scottish environment, has been shortlisted for the LIFE Citizens’ Award for Environment at the LIFE Environment Best Project Awards annual ceremony, to be held on Tuesday 31 May 2016 during EU Green Week 2016 in Brussels.

The website, designed to bring together information from a wide range of institutions involved in monitoring Scotland’s environment, has revolutionised the way people access and work with environmental data, attracting a new audience who are hungry to learn about their surroundings and are eager to make a difference.

Scotland’s Environment Web is produced by the James Hutton Institute-supported SEWeb partnership, in conjunction with partners Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), Keep Scotland Beautiful, Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH), Forestry Commision Scotland and the Scottish Government, along with several contributing organisations.

To help Scotland’s Environment Web win the LIFE Citizens’ Award, you can cast your vote on the EUsurvey website until Monday 30th May 2016, 23:00 Brussels time (22:00 BST).
