HeidelbergCement invites all nature enthusiasts, for example researchers, students and citizens, to take part in this unique competition by designing new and innovative projects based on the biodiversity in our quarries. Candidates are invited to develop a project idea in one of the participating quarries and to submit a ‘project proposal’ by 18 November 2021 (11PM CET) on the website.
By 16 December 2021 the Quarry Life Award juries of each national contest will select a maximum of six projects that can enter the competition. The contestants will then be invited to realise their project ideas during the research period of January to September 2022. All selected projects will compete simultaneously at national and international levels.
At the end of the research period, the contestants will have to submit a ‘final project report’ of no more than 10 pages. Reports can be written in national language and in English. However, the international jury will only consider the final project reports submitted in English for international awards. The deadline for the final report submission is 15 September 2022.
