Nominations open for The MIDORI Prize for Biodiversity 2020

The MIDORI Prize, a biennial international prize co-organised by the AEON Environmental Foundation and the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), honours three individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.

Winners of the prize will each be honoured at an award ceremony held in Tokyo, Japan on 18 September 2020, prior to the fifteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties, and will each receive a monetary prize of US$100,000. On the same day, The AEON Environmental Foundation will hold an event to mark the 30th Anniversary of its establishment, with all past MIDORI Prize winners invited for a panel discussion.

Nominations for candidates for this prize are currently being accepted through the website of the AEON Environmental Foundation, and remain open until 30 March, 2020. To find out more or to nominate a candidate, visit the website here.
