In keeping with its mission of promoting the conservation of biodiversity and sustainable use of nature, NCC fosters award programs to encourage and reward eco-friendly initiatives:
The annual International Biodiversity Day at AUB (IBDAA) poster forum aims at increasing awareness about biodiversity issues, whilst encouraging original and critical thinking. Participants walk away having conducted innovative research, accumulated representation and presentation skills, and acquired a greener way of thinking.
The Samir & Claude Abillama Eco-Entrepreneurship Award promotes the green entrepreneurial model, and encourages out-of-the-box eco-friendly business ideas. It provides a financial boost to the winning team to encourage the development of a startup with green objectives.
