RSPB Scotland's Joanne Simpson shares why she loves the Nature of Scotland Awards and gives her top tips for writing a great application.
Be a part of our Nature of Scotland Awards
People do great things for nature – whether this protecting it, restoring it or inspiring others to do good things for it. We are lucky to be part of an amazing team of people fighting for nature in Scotland and we celebrate this as part of our Nature of Scotland Awards.
For the last 8 years, the awards have recognised incredible things happening in Scotland for nature and wildlife. Not only is it motivating to hear about the great things going on across the country and to meet like-minded people in the conservation community, it’s also a great chance to celebrate your achievements.
One of my highlights of last year was working on the awards and watching them from start to finish. The awards ceremony had such an inspiring atmosphere and, in a world where we are subjected to much discouraging news regarding the state of our nature, it was heart-warming to meet all the finalists and to witness the great things happening right on our doorstep. As cheesy as it sounds, it really felt like everyone was a winner!
The Nature of Scotland Awards 2020 have now launched and we’re already looking forward to hearing about the amazing things happening across Scotland in support of nature and wildlife. We have nine different categories, including two new awards – the Forest and Woodland Award and the Nature and Climate Action Award.
If you haven’t thought about entering the awards before, they’re completely free to enter and all you need to do is complete and submit an application form by Monday 1 June. To help you, here are five top tips:
