Peter Brown selected for Herman Daly Award 2017



Club of Rome member Dr. Peter Brown was awarded the Herman Daly Award 2017 for his outstanding contributions to ecological economics.

The Herman Daly Award was established in 2003 in honor of one of the visionaries and founders of ecological economics, Herman Daly. The award is designed to recognize outstanding contributions to the field, and acknowledges individuals who have connected ecological economic thinking to practical applications and solutions that are sustainable in scale, equitable in distribution, and efficient in allocation.

According to the nomination, Peter’s “intellectual contributions have ranged from environmental ethics to practical proposals for trusteeship institutions. As a teacher he has inspired many students, at University of Maryland, at McGill, and all over the world through his writings. In addition Peter has been an entrepreneur in founding university programs that embrace and encourage ecological economics, most notably and recently the Economics for the Anthropocene program uniting the efforts of McGill, York, and University of Vermont. And in his spare time, in addition to nurturing students and protecting colleagues, he has planted many thousands of trees!”

The award will be presented at the 9th annual conference of the Society, held at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota from June 25-28, 2017.

The Club of Rome congratulates Peter Brown to this fantastic award!
