Alcan Prize for Sustainability 2005 launched

The $1 million Alcan Prize for Sustainability 2005 was launched last month at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

This US$1 million prize, launched in 2004, is awarded each year to any not-for-profit, civil society or non-governmental organisation based anywhere in the world for their contributions to addressing and progressing economic, environmental and/or social sustainability.

In addition to the US$1 million prize, the adjudication panel will have the opportunity to recognise non-winning finalists by awarding Alcan Grants, redeemable for a suitably qualified senior member of staff to attend the University of Cambridge Programme for Industry in England and earn a Post Graduate Certificate in Cross Sector Partnership. The Grants will be awarded on merit and at the discretion of the adjudication panel.

The closing date for entries is 31 March 2005 (Midnight GMT).
