Conservation Leadership Programme team awards’ call for applications
The Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP) is delighted to invite applications to the 2022 Team Awards from teams of early-career conservationists leading critical projects worldwide. CLP is a partnership of three of the world’s leading biodiversity conservation organisations. Drawing upon the expertise of conservation professionals from across the globe, it directs project funding and training to early career leaders from developing countries who are tackling priority conservation challenges. To achieve this, CLP identifies and engages exceptional young conservationists, invests in their professional development through grants, training and mentoring, and helps them to multiply their impact across the conservation sector. For 35 years CLP has been providing important career steppingstones to over 2,900 individuals who now form an extensive global network of conservation practitioners.
