Foltányi Zsuzsa - „FoZsu” emlékösztöndíj

Foltányi Zsuzsa, az alapítvány első “alapító” igazgatója, majd élete végéig az alapítvány stratégiai tanácsadója, a kuratórium, illetve az adományi bizottság tagja, a magyarországi civil környezetvédelmi mozgalom és a  fenntarthatósági törekvések egyik legmeghatározóbb személyisége.

 

Emléke és munkássága előtt tisztelegve 2024-ben emlékösztöndíjat alapítottunk azzal a céllal, hogy ösztönözzük és támogassuk azokat a kiváló egyetemi hallgatókat, akik a környezettudományokhoz kapcsolódó területeken tanulnak és aktív szerepet vállalnak a fenntarthatóság és a környezet védelmének népszerűsítésében. Az ösztöndíj célja hozzásegíteni a díjazottakat ahhoz, hogy pozitív hatást gyakoroljanak a környezetre, éppúgy, mint ahogy Foltányi Zsuzsa tette élete során.
