Young Leader Grant
“When it comes to the future of our environment, we want to do the right thing for ourselves and for our children…”
~ Senator Diane Griffin
“My nature as a kid was found in nearby nature like the creeks and ditches, walks to school, and the suburban life… In high school my eyes were opened to the professional opportunities that nature offers to all Canadians. My life since has been driven by a love that runs deep and a desire to ensure that our nature is protected, valued and loved by all.”
~ Dawn Carr
Call for Applications
All across Canada, people and organizations inspire us with their leadership and devotion to our 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 our children’s futures.
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. To that end, Women for Nature have established a grant/bursary for a young person to develop and implement a project inspired by some of the objectives in the recently published Nature Playbook.
This Women for Nature sponsored grant of $1,000 will support project implementation in the year 2019, to celebrate the role that nature plays in our Canadian culture and identity.
