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!

The regional competition jury consists of two external ecology experts and Giv Brantenberg, General Manager of HeidelbergCement Northern Europe.

The projects that will be initiated are following:

ESTONIA

  • Aru-Lõuna quarry: “Creating novel communities to increase biodiversity in Aru-Lõuna limestone quarry”.
  • Mereäärne quarry: "Optimising post-mining land-use decision-making in cooperation with stakeholders".

SWEDEN

  • Slite quarry: "How to make wild bees thrive in areas affected by quarrying".
     

NORWAY

  • Bjørntvet quarry: "Planning for revegetation".


Congratulations to the selected teams - and good luck with you work!

The projects start officially in January and during spring the teams will do their investigation and field studies. In autumn 2018 the result will be summarized, presented and evaluated.
