Opportunities Saving the Planet

Terre de Femmes International Award opens to women supporting biodiversity (€10k)

Terre de Femmes International Award - cleanbuild

To all the women working hard to preserve the planet in various parts of the world, the Yves Rocher Foundation is pleased to announce its Terre de Femmes International Award to reward your efforts.

Launched in 2019, the International Award is an annual thematic award that is redefined every year. For this year’s edition, the award will be given to women-led projects committed to the conservation of wildlife and associated ecosystems, through concrete actions within a non-profit organization.

The Foundation understands that protecting the future starts today not to mention that tackling the climate emergency requires every ounce of energy and drive.

To that end, the Terre de Femmes International Award is designed to highlight the role of all the women who are fighting on a daily basis, in their communities, and alongside local populations, to promote the importance of wildlife as a fundamental element of the planet’s ecosystem. The contest is open to women around the globe.
