2020 Environmental Initiative Awards

We’re excited to honor innovative people and projects that are working collaboratively to build holistic solutions to environmental issues at our annual Environmental Initiative Awards celebration.

Environmental Initiative works across difference with partners to create spaces where people can openly exchange ideas and come to a consensus on challenging issues. Our goal is to create a healthy environment, prosperous economy and equitable society, and we know that’s only possible through partnership. Join us to celebrate the successes of collaborative individuals and creative projects doing the same.

This year’s event will honor seven award recipients—five projects and two individuals—during an inspiring night of networking and celebration with environmental leaders and partners from across our organizational work. The evening will include a networking reception with hors d’oeuvres, a seated program highlighting innovative efforts across Minnesota, and conclude with a “Meet the Winners” reception and late-night snacks.

We will open registration for this event in mid-March.

We need your help to find innovative nominees for the 2020 Environmental Initiative Awards. Do you know of creative people or projects working at the intersection of a healthy environment, prosperous economy, and equitable society? Nominate them today!

The evening will include a networking reception with a cash bar and hors d’oeuvres, followed by dessert and conversation at tables, and a formal Awards presentation. The evening will conclude with a “Meet the Winners” reception and late-night snacks.
