Who deserves recognition for reducing climate emissions in the Nordic Region? Anybody can nominate potential winners of the Nordic Council Nature and Environment Prize 2015. The winner will be announced at a gala in Reykjavik.
Last year's happy winner. Selina Juul, the winner in 2013, hands over the prize to the City of Reykjavik in the City Hall, Stockholm.
The 21st Nordic Council Nature and Environment Prize will be handed over during a prize gala in Reykjavik's iconic concert venue Harpa on 27 October.
The theme is climate emissions and the prize will go to a company, organisation or person, which, in an exemplary way, has developed a product or invention, or through other creative efforts has contributed to the future reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases in the Nordic Region.
The deadline is 13 April.
The names of the nominees will be announced in June.
