The Veolia Foundation’s Student Solidarity Award has been encouraging students to invent new sustainable development models for the past decade. The award offers support for higher education students involved in citizens’ and solidarity projects. Initiatives must focus on international development aid, fostering social links and moving into employment, or protecting the environment and biodiversity, the Veolia Foundation’s three areas of intervention, in order to be eligible for the award. Winners are given funding and technical support through the skills-based sponsorship programme that harnesses Veolia group experts across the globe.
