John and Alice Tyler Prize

John and Alice Tyler decided in 1972 to create a new international award to recognize those individuals who have contributed in an outstanding manner to the scientific knowledge and public leadership to preserve and enhance the environment of the world.

The Tylers had become highly concerned about the effects of increasing pollution and ecological imbalance, and they decided to do something about it. Their foresight in the context of that time is hard to appreciate today because the environmental debate was still in its infancy and was contested by many. The nations of the world were only beginning to look for answers to the international environmental crisis by assembling at the first United Nations Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm, Sweden that same year.
