The Alliance of World Scientists awards the Earth Planet Awards. Kimberly Nicholas is one of the recipients 2024.

Kimberly Nicholas, Asssociate Professor at LUCSUS, is one of six recipients of the 2024 Planet Earth Award, a prestigous prize which acknowledges individuals who champion life on Earth.

These individuals received the prize because they demonstrate exceptional creativity or contributions in their work in science-based advocacy with the public, policymakers, or other non-scientist groups seeking solutions to environmental challenges.

– I was very happy when I got the news. It feels good to have my outreach work recognized. I really feel that the best way I can make a positive impact is to bring what is known from science to those who can put this knowledge into practice. So this award is an important validation of science-based advocacy, communication and dialogue, says Associate Professor Kimberly Nicholas.

– I was also honored to be recognized alongside one of my  long-time heroes, climate scientist Dr. Jim Hansen!

The prize is awarded by the The Alliance of World Scientists – an international assembly of scientists, which is independent of both governmental and non-governmental organizations and corporations. The main goal of the AWS is to be a collective international voice of many scientists regarding global climate and environmental trends and how to turn accumulated knowledge into action. The AWS currently has 27,000 Subscribing Members From 180 Countries.
