ICOMOS is launching the ICOMOS Culture-Nature Prize, which will be awarded to support the most promising Culture-Nature initiatives undertaken by our members.

Culture-Nature initiatives recognise the interconnections between cultural and natural heritage and rethink how we can protect culture and nature through a comprehensive approach with local communities. Through integrated protection, management and sustainable development of our heritage places, Culture-Nature initiatives build resilience to today’s challenges of climate change, pollution and rapid urbanisation.

The prize will be given to a project under implementation, which addresses connections between culture and nature and makes a significant contribution to the heritage field in an innovative and effective way.

ICOMOS members, Committees and Working Groups are eligible to apply.

Entries can be related to tangible or intangible heritage. Their scope can be ranging from small to large, from local to international.

The ICOMOS Culture-Nature Prize will honour up to 3 outstanding heritage initiatives.

The total prize money to be distributed to the winner(s) is €15.000 (fifteen thousand euros). Up to three prize winners will be selected.

The Prize winner(s) will be announced on the occasion of the 2022 ICOMOS Annual General Assembly.

ICOMOS members are invited to apply by 22 June 2022.
