The Natura Award is an acknowledgement and a sign of admiration towards all those projects and people who work day after day in order to create a positive impact somewhere in our world. We have been supporting more than 70 projects since. We have this year’s winners!
Do you know how the selection and voting of the award is carried out?
An outside consultant takes care of reading each submited project, scores each of them folowing a guideline and selects the finalists.
The next step is the voting. Everyone that is part of Natura gives his or her vote.
Each year the fist places are very hard-fought and in 2017 we’ve seen a very tight result.
And now, meet the winners:
