Does your solution protects the environment and encourages a more sustainable society? Then, you are eligible to win $100,000.
The St Andrews Prize for the Environment is a major international initiative led by the University of St Andrews that recognises and supports innovative and inspirational responses to environmental challenges, including the climate crisis. It is overseen by the Master of the United College, Professor Ineke De Moortel FRAS FRSE.
Now in its 25th year, the Prize aims to champion the people and ideas addressing the greatest challenge of the age.
For a project to be eligible it must:
- An established project with a proven track record of success.
- Be related to sustainable development and/or biodiversity, and be aligned with the UN Goals for Sustainable Development.
- Be replicable from one geographic area to another and ideally be scalable in size.
- Have a clearly defined need for funding.
- Have the ability to inspire others in the field.
- Contribute to the global pursuit of sustainability in the short- to long-term.
- Meet high ethical standards in respect of intellectual property, and in how it interacts with people, and with the environment.
- Must be inclusive.
- The St Andrews Prize welcomes applications from individuals and organisations (including community groups) who lead projects that protect the environment and/or contribute to its sustainable development.
- As a core aim of the Prize is to bring about substantial progress in solving environmental problems, University seeks applications from projects where winning would lead to a step-change in the development and implementation of the idea.
- As a general rule, the University is unlikely to be able to make payments to countries under international sanctions, therefore University encourages projects based in such locations to consider carefully if this may impact them before applying
