Women for Nature have established a grant/bursary for a young person to develop and implement a project to celebrate the role that nature plays in Canadian culture and identity.
Women for Nature are leaders who care deeply about nature and want to inspire others to make a difference. In particular, they want to encourage, foster and nurture youth (under 30) to demonstrate their leadership for nature.
All across Canada, people and organizations inspire them with their leadership and devotion to natural world. They commit their time and energy not for credit but for the results. They choose to take up the call to protect, engage and advocate on behalf of nature. They act as a strong voice for nature for children’s futures.
- Grant range up to $1,000.
- To that end, a grant/bursary has been established for a young person to develop and implement a youth-led, community-based project centered around nature and sustainability in Canada.
Interested applicants should submit either a two page essay or a short video (in English or French) outlining their proposed project. Project ideas will be evaluated by a Women for Nature Grant Selection Committee based on the following criteria:
- Potential impact and benefits of the project;
- Public engagement and reach of the project;
