St Andrews Prize for the Environment 2008 still open to entrants
We need to encourage the entrepreneur in people
Prof. Jacqueline McGlade, Executive Director of the EEA
The prize rewards innovative, practical solutions to environmental problems, which can be replicated in different regions of the world.
'We must be creative about the environmental dilemma we find ourselves in. We need to encourage the entrepreneur in people. The St Andrews Prize has been presenting the environment as a challenge and an opportunity to innovative people for 10 years — long may it continue,' says Prof. Jacqueline McGlade, Executive Director of the EEA.
The prize is an environmental initiative by the University of St Andrews, Scotland's first university, and the integrated energy company ConocoPhillips.
