NEVS put up 50,000 SEK ($5,200) to reward individuals or groups working with sustainable mobility projects.
‘The last Saab’ was sold at auction last autumn. With the proceeds from that sale and in association with University West, NEVS can now award a sustainability prize of 50 000 Swedish kronor.
The prize money will be awarded to individuals, groups or organisations who have made particularly significant efforts for a sustainable world.
The award is planned to be presented during a ceremony in Trollhättan in May this year.
The criteria for being nominated for the award is to have contributed to work for the mobility solutions of the future, with a clear focus on benefiting society.
The NEVS Sustainability Award will be presented to individuals, groups or organisations who have strived to achieve NEVS’ vision, i.e. that we take further steps towards a more sustainable society, towards fossil fuel free transportation and/or other initiatives aimed at improving the environment.
The award can go to specific and innovative efforts within:
• Communications/opinion shaping
• Research efforts
• Project work
These can be efforts linked to University West’s work as well as those made by individuals or organisations all across the country. The aim is to raise awareness of sustainability initiatives and projects.
Please send nominations and applications to [email protected] with a description of what the nominee has done and what the work has resulted in (with references), as well as what any future expectations may be. The deadline for applications is 14th April 2020. You can nominate yourself or someone else or an organisation.
DECISION ON AWARD WINNER
A decision will be made by a committee comprising representatives from NEVS, University West and the Trollhättan local authority trade and sustainability department.
The NEVS Sustainability Award will be presented annually for at least the next five years.
