WWF wins NGO of the Year Award 2014

Brussels, Belgium: Yesterday evening WWF European Policy Office won the prestigious title of NGO of the Year at the European Public Affairs Awards 2014. 

The prize recognises the excellence of WWF’s campaigning work at EU level including ‘Stop bankrupting our oceans’, which successfully campaigned to improve the EU Common Fisheries policy and restore fish stocks, and the ‘Well-Spent’ campaign aiming at greening the once every seven year EU budget reform.

Tony Long, Director of the office, was on hand to collect the prize at the ceremony in Brussels which gathered over one hundred professionals from the European Public Affairs world.

This is the third time in seven years that the work of WWF’s EU office has been recognised for its achievements at the European Public Affairs Awards. WWF is the only organisation to have won the prize three times across all categories.

We would like to thank all those who voted for us during the competition, and all WWF colleagues, partners and donors who have contributed to the success of our work.
