Climate Communication Prize

The Climate Communication Prize is given annually to one honoree in recognition  for "the communication of climate science."

Established in 2011, the Climate Communication Prize is funded by Nature’s Own, a purveyor of fossils, minerals, and handcrafted jewelry in Boulder, Colorado. The Climate Prize highlights the importance of promoting scientific literacy, clarity of message, and efforts to foster respected and understanding of science-based values as they relate to the implications of climate change.

The Climate Communication Prize is for communication of climate science – not scientific research. Examples of prize qualifications are promotion of scientific literacy, clarity of message and efforts to foster respect and understanding of science-based value as they relate to the implications of climate change.  These are exemplary of the activities of the Prize winner, but all are not necessary. Winning contribution can be a specific campaign communication or a long-career track record of climate communication.
