Previous Bursary Scheme details
The winners of the 2010 bursaries were Kirsty Schneeberger and Nicola Peart. Kirsty, a graduate in Government & International Relations and Philosophy was funded to work with Think2050, a project based in London that aims to broaden the participation of young people in Government policy-making and legislation. As a result of her work Kirsty was awarded an MBE. Nicola, a graduate in Plant Sciences and Ecology, and in Environmental Economics and Policy, will be doing the GDL at the College of Law in London in 2010/11. Nicola’s internship was with the Law of Nature Foundation on Bantayan Island, The Philippines.
For 2009 two awards were made which nicely complemented each other. One award was to support work in Wales exploring the interface between habitat conservation and countryside access legislation, while the other award was to support research into the recent changes to the constitution of Ecuador which seeks to grant rights directly to nature (as advocated by those in favour of ‘Wild Law’).
