On 22nd of March 2022, after a three-year break, forced by Covid-19 pandemic, we could finally meet in person again and enjoy the celebration of the European trees together.
The Ceremony started with awarding the winners of ETY2020 and ETY2021. We were happy that some of the nominators, the local communities itself, could participate and receive the price from our hands. It is the most rewarding moment, when people from those distant places arrive to the Ceremony showing, how important the tree is for their community. We really appreciate this!

We were also happy that the community of our supporters and funs is increasing and many of them wanted to participate at least remotely. The event was streamed live to more than 5000 of those people and we hope it will inspire many of them to nominate their beloved trees in future editions of our contest and take part in this challenging endeavour with us.

Big thanks should be send to our partners in all 16 participating countries, to the national organizers and their involved teams! It is not an easy task to run this contest at national level and we really appreciate their commitment to it! Finally yet importantly, let us thank to everyone who supported their favourite trees in European Tree of the Year 2022 competition. Without this wide public support, the contest will not fulfil its goal to activate the Europeans to take care of their local magnificent trees and protect the precious environment around them.
Please, enjoy with us some moments from our Award Ceremony.
