If you are on a mission to change our world for the better, you are in the right place. You can apply for one of the 200 places using the form below.

Once selected, the DARWIN200 Leaders are invited to our tall ship The Oosterschelde, together with a small group of other Darwin Leaders. For one week you will be based in one of the ports Charles Darwin visited along the HMS Beagle route.

There you will engage with local NGOs to analyze issues and challenges they face protecting specific species, habitats, and ecosystems. But you also develop action plans together for further improvements and possible necessary change.

We strive to select and match people from all nations, cultural backgrounds and gender. The most important is your proven passion for conservation and lifelong motivation to make world a better place.
