World Citizen Prizes in Environmental Performance

PRINT PAGE

About the Award

Beginning with our November 7-9, 2019 conference in Denver, APPAM will present the World Citizen Prizes in Environmental Performance at the Annual Fall Research Conference.  Granted by David and Joy K. Peyton, the award recognizes research that assesses pathways to achieve measurable but as-yet unrealized gains in overall environmental performance, in particular to reduce consumption and waste.  The research may be based on the United States or any other country or countries.
 

2019 Recipients

APPAM is proud to announce the recipients of the inaugural World Citizen Prizes in Environmental Performance, Dr. Nathan Hultman and Dr. Gregory Nemet.
 
 
Hultman-Photo-Headshot
Professor Hultman, as research director for the America’s Pledge Initiative on Climate Change, and lead author for the 2018 report and forthcoming 2019 report, has helped shape a collaborative research program that combines robust analysis of climate policy options with stakeholder engagement and communications. With contributions from a research team of 55 co-authors across seven institutions, Fulfilling America’s Pledge includes both new analytical and modeling approaches as well as a broad engagement strategy, drawing from work with diverse stakeholders across sectors and governance levels to identify and assess the impact of options with near-term potential for policy action.



 
 

Nemet-Gregory-2016

Professor Nemet’s work for his book came as part of his Andrew Carnegie Fellowship in 2017, which he used to study solar energy’s widespread adoption. For it he drew on new data analyses and conducted interviews with 75 people across 18 countries, and discovered that central to solar energy’s success have been the flows of knowledge from one country to another. This is often embodied in equipment and as tacit knowledge in the heads of internationally mobile individuals.
