We are proud to be partnering with The Iris Project

The Iris Project celebrates and supports young people accelerating action to protect and #RestoreNature, ensuring a liveable future for all.

The Iris Project has launched an annual global award for three outstanding projects who best embody the spirit of the Iris Project – championing the protection and restoration of nature, and the rights of those who defend it.

Grants will be awarded in conjunction with mentorship and individually-tailored capacity building, facilitated by the Youth Advisory Panel.

Nature restoration takes a variety of forms – from traditional land stewardship, to innovative technological solutions. As such, the Iris Project will reward new ideas and established projects, hoping to overcome the circumstantial barriers that too often prevent young people from being able to advocate for nature-related change.

How to apply for the Iris prize

Are you an individual or a youth-led organisation between the ages of 14 and 24 years old? Do you have an idea or an established project working to protect and restore nature as a core solution to the climate crisis?

Deadline to apply: June 14th, 2022.
