HeidelbergCement invites researchers, students and citizens to submit biodiversity projects in its quarries around the world.
The aim of this scientific and educational contest is to raise awareness of the organic value of mining sites and share new best practices with the scientific community, NGOs, authorities and our operating units.
Over 110 projects worldwide have been selected to compete in the 4th edition 2018 and win up to 30.000 Euro.
Over the next couple of weeks, all projects competing in the fourth edition of the Quarry Life Award will be introduced individually on the QLA Facebook page. We invite you to check the page on a regular basis and learn more about the fantastic research ideas!
The research phase of the fourth QLA edition has started with nature enthusiasts undertaking over 110 projects at quarries across 25 participating countries. Many participants visited "their" quarry for the first time and will update you with their blogs about the research.
Let's celebrate! On the occasion of the sixth year anniversary, HeidelbergCement and BirdLife International have published a brochure highlighting the successes of their partnership.
