Established in 2020, the Prize supports the rehabilitation of public or private natural areas, in France and Switzerland alike. Over and above protection of the environment, the aim is to breathe new life into places to raise the general public’s awareness of biodiversity and the wealth of natural heritage.
The Prize is open to French and Swiss applications from public or private owners of a landscaped area in rural or urban areas that are open to visitors. Projects may concern a garden, park, forest or agricultural land with landscape or ecological value and demonstrating active commitment.
The Prize is awarded to a winner following an assessment of the technical and heritage aspects by the Foundation, its partners and an annual jury made up of respected experts in environmental protection. The prize is worth CHF 30,000.
