About the SEE Ecological Award
The SEE Ecological Award is given to 10 recipients from public and private sector – including environmental organizations, media, businesses, government agencies, and individuals – that have developed and led outstanding efforts to safeguard the environment. An additional eleventh award is also given to an exemplary recipient.
The application and review process is difficult and comprehensive – a panel of experts reviews the work portfolio, conducts an in-person interview and may also make project field visits.
