The MIDORI Prize is a biennial international prize co-organized by the AEON Environmental Foundation and the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) that honours three individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. It aims to encourage positive action for biodiversity and inspire others by showcasing the notable work of those it honours.
Established by the AEON Environmental Foundation during the 2010 International Year of Biodiversity, this year will mark the sixth time that the MIDORI Prize is being awarded.
The Prize will be awarded at a special ceremony organized in Tokyo on 18 September 2020, prior to the fifteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 15) to the CBD. 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 are invited from members of the public through the website of the AEON Environmental Foundation at: www.aeon.info/ef/en/prize/
