St Andrews Prize for the Environment 2009 open for submissions

Does your environmental conservation project need more resources and greater visibility? The St Andrews Prize for the Environment might give your project that extra boost.

The St Andrews Prize for the Environment, an initiative of the University of St Andrews and the international energy company ConocoPhillips, is one of the biggest environmental prizes worldwide. Now in its 11th year, the prize will grant USD 75 000 to the winner and USD 25 000 each to the two runners-up.

'We know that technology has a key role to play in improving our environmental performance. The St Andrews Prize promotes practical and relevant solutions suited to local communities' needs and know-how', said Professor Jacqueline McGlade, Executive Director of the European Environment Agency.

Since its launch in 1998, the St Andrews Prize has attracted more than 2 000 entries from 50 countries around the globe, on a wide range of topics, including renewable energy, health and water issues, waste and recycling.

To enter the 2009 competition, a 500-word summary of your project should be submitted by 31 October 2008 to: email
