Big Biodiversity Challenge winners & judges handy hints

With less than five weeks remaining before the deadline closes for entries to the 2019 BIG Biodiversity Challenge Awards, join us on this lunchtime webinar to hear from previous award winners and a judge to get those last minute hints and tips for your application.


The BIG Biodiversity Challenge is an initiative to raise awareness of how biodiversity needs to become a key component within the construction industry, as an integrated part of planning and delivering projects.

The BIG Biodiversity Challenge continues to be recognised as the number one industry initiative for delivering biodiversity within construction and the built environment. Since its launch in 2013, the challenge has grown considerably and attracts organisations from a wide range of stakeholder groups.
