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 social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram).
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.
The jury have selected the projects that they believe have a potential to add a clear value to nature, the community next to the quarries, and the company!
