St Andrews Prize for the Environment 2024 Opens for Entries

The University of St Andrews has launched its annual global Prize for the Environment.

The St Andrews Prize for the Environment is a significant global initiative that identifies and champions innovative and inspiring responses to environmental challenges, including the climate crisis.

Now in its 26th year, the St Andrews Prize was established by the University to reward and promote the most significant global contributions to environmental conservation and sustainable development.

Applications are now invited from individuals, multi-disciplinary teams, or community groups for the 2024 Prize, which is worth US$100,000 for the winner and US$25,000 for the runner(s)-up.

Three projects will be selected to participate in the St Andrews Prize for the Environment final, which will take place at the University of St Andrews from 30-31 October.

Commenting, Professor Sir Ian Boyd FRS FRSE PRSB, Chair of the St Andrews Prize for the Environment judging panel, said:

“The St Andrews Prize is an opportunity for those leading creative and imaginative efforts in their countries and communities to receive well-deserved recognition for their outstanding work. The Prize serves both to celebrate and to inspire those working on what is surely the most pressing challenge of our times.”

The 2023 Prize was awarded to Alianza Ceibo, for their Indigenous-led model for the sustainable protection of the Upper Amazon Rainforest.
