The Science and Practice of Ecology & Society Award is given annually to the individual
or organization that is the most effective in bringing transdisciplinary science
of the interactions of ecology and society into practice. The focus of the award
is on practitioners. Examples of possible winners include, a high school teacher
who develops a special curriculum, a mayor with initiatives and actions for the town
based on scientific concepts, a journalist who brings scientific insights to a broader
audience, or a NGO group who facilitates local knowledge production in rural communities.
The purpose of this award is to recognize the importance of practitioners who translate
the scientific findings and insights of the scholarly community to practical applications.
We want to identify innovative practitioners so that their story can be an example
