Does your approach help to preserve the environment and promote the growth of a more environmentally responsible society? If this is the case, you will be entered into a drawing for $100 000.
The St. Andrews Prize for the Environment is a significant international initiative that is led by the University of St. Andrews. Its purpose is to recognise and support responses to environmental challenges, such as the climate catastrophe, that are innovative and inspirational. Professor Ineke De Moortel FRAS FRSE, who is also the Master of the United College, is in charge of supervising it.
The Prize, which is now in its 25th year, seeks to honour both the individuals and the concepts that are working to address the most pressing issue of our time.
In order for an initiative to qualify, it needs to have:
a well-established endeavour that has a history of achieving favourable outcomes.
be connected to the concept of sustainable development and/or biodiversity, and be in line with the United Nations’ Goals for the Development of a Sustainable World.
be able to be replicated in different geographical areas, and preferably expandable in terms of size as well.
- Establish your need for financing in as much detail as possible.
- Have the ability to motivate people working in the same industry as you.
- Make a contribution, either in the short term or the long term, to the overarching goal of sustainability.
- Maintain a high level of ethical responsibility with regard to intellectual property, as well as how it engages with other people and the surrounding surroundings.
It is necessary to welcome all.
The Criteria for Eligibility
Individuals and organisations (including community groups) that are in charge of projects that either safeguard the environment or contribute to its sustainable development are encouraged to submit an application for consideration for the St. Andrews Prize.
The University is looking for applications from projects that would, should they be awarded the prize, result in a significant leap forward in the conceptualization and actualization of the idea. This is due to the fact that the primary objective of the Prize is to make significant headway in the fight against environmental issues.
It is extremely unlikely that the University will be able to make payments to nations that are currently subject to international sanctions. As a result, the University strongly advises projects that are located in nations like these to carefully consider how this may affect them before applying for funding.
