The Nature of Scotland Awards 2021 open for entries

Brought to you by RSPB Scotland and co-sponsored by NatureScot, be part of our special 10 year anniversary awards programme! Free to enter, we are seeking applications and nominations by Tuesday 14 June in 10 award categories from business, public sector organisations, research institutions, community groups and individuals who have been active in nature conservation across Scotland, and their work can date back to March 2018.

We are proud to announce two new categories including the Health and Wellbeing Award which recognises the positive relationship between nature and wellbeing and celebrates initiatives that actively encourage people to engage with nature to support mental and/or physical health and a new Nature Champion of the Decade which will open as a public vote in autumn.

Learn more about all the award categories, enter your own project or nominate your conservation heroes today.

We look forward to receiving your entries! For updates on the awards and information on our previous winners please follow @NatureofScot on Twitter.

They will be indispensable to Scotland’s ‘green recovery’ from Covid-19, stimulating a revival that secures resilience through a nature-rich future for Scotland and an effective response to the climate emergency. This means that by 2030, Scotland will be recognised as a world leader in looking after and enhancing nature.
