Future For Nature (FFN) supports young, talented and ambitious nature conservationists committed to protecting species of wild animals and plants. We believe in the power of young individuals. Sir David Attenborough stated this perfectly:
“In the end, it is that one individual that has fire in the belly, that one individual that is determined that something should be done.” – Sir David Attenborough, Guest of Honour 2009
Therefore, we select a new generation of nature conservationists worldwide who we believe make the difference. They are natural leaders with a proven track record that inspire and mobilize communities, organisations, governments, investors and the public at large, for the future of nature.
Each year three winners receive the prestigious Future For Nature Award and 50,000 euros. Winning the FFN Award gives them international recognition for their work and opens doors that were previously closed.
The Future For Nature winners form a growing community of dedicated men and women. FFN offers them the opportunity to meet , to exchange experience and knowhow and to learn together in order to continue their fight for nature as efficiently and effectively as possible.
To continue our work we rely on donations and in-kind support. You or your organisation can make a meaningful contribution to true effective and efficient nature conservation by investing in FFN’s network of winners, selected with care by renowned international conservation experts.
“Future For Nature is the gift that keeps on giving.” – Anna Oposa FFN winner 2012
