Europa Nostra Award "Europa Nostra, (Latin for Our Europe) the pan-European Federation for Cultural Heritage, is the representative platform of 250 heritage NGOs active in 45 countries across Europe. It is the voice of this vast movement of European civil society active in the field of heritage towards international bodies concerned, in particular the European Union Institutions, the Council of Europe and UNESCO.

Europa Nostra's main goal is to put heritage and its benefits in the mainstream of public consciousness and to make heritage a priority for public policies both at European and national levels. Its specific objectives are to promote, at a European level, high standards of quality in the fields of heritage conservation, architecture, urban and rural planning and to advocate a balanced and sustainable development of urban and rural, built and natural environment.

Europa Nostra supports national and international campaigns for the preservation and rescue of Europe's heritage at risk. It encourages initiatives in favour of the conservation and enhancement of cultural heritage by recognising outstanding heritage achievements, in particular through the running of the European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Awards, in partnership with the European Commission. In early 2006, Europa Nostra was selected as the new Liaison Office for the coordination of the European Heritage Days, a joint action of the Council of Europe and the European Commission." (Wiki).

Although there is significant overlap with the "official" WH In Danger List the lists are not the same and are created in different ways -
"IUCN's World Heritage Outlook provides the first global assessment of the conservation prospects for natural World Heritage. By assessing every natural site with World Heritage status, it recognizes good conservation practice and supports the role of World Heritage sites in demonstrating excellence. It also identifies the actions needed to support sites that are facing threats, in order to improve their conservation outlook.

Based on expert knowledge, IUCN's World Heritage Outlook is designed to track the state of conservation of all natural World Heritage sites over time. Implemented by the IUCN World Heritage Programme and IUCN's World Commission on Protected Areas (WCPA), it aims to provide reliable, transparent and independent information on the present situation and future prospects of natural World Heritage through Conservation Outlook Assessments.
The IUCN World Heritage Outlook is a proactive step to overcome existing and potential knowledge gaps through a methodological approach. The best available data from a wide range of sources and consultation with stakeholders is mobilized into a single IUCN hub for natural World Heritage.

The World Heritage Outlook also highlights the benefits that World Heritage sites provide to people, and projects supporting these exceptional places"

IUCN Green List The IUCN Green List of protected areas is a new global initiative that celebrates the success of effective protected areas, and encourages the sharing of that success so that other protected areas can also reach high standards. More effective protected areas lead to greater benefits for humans and nature.
The IUCN Green List will be developed from 2012 to 2014, with a full launch scheduled for the 2014 IUCN World Parks Congress in Sydney, Australia. A number of partners have already joined the pilot phase to help test and refine the process. They include Parques Nacionales Naturales in Colombia, the Korean National Park Service and the CA/TS (Conservation Assured/Tiger Standards) project being carried out by WWF in tiger range countries. IUCN will develop the Green List by adding a diversity of countries and programmes to the pilot phase for testing, ensuring the process is refined to be fair, simple and regionally adaptable. As an ambitious undertaking that will move protected area conservation forward, the IUCN Green List of well-managed protected areas provides a new opportunity for results that demonstrate the IUCN vision of a just world that values and conserves nature.
