International ethecon Awards
Call for nominations

ethecon – Foundation Ethics & Economics is calling for the nomination of recipients of the foundation's two International ethecon Awards. Please let us have your nominations by May 31st. The requirements for putting someone forward are set out in more detail below.

With the International ethecon Blue Planet Award ethecon honors individuals who have shown outstanding committment to the conservation and preservation of our Blue Planet. With the International ethecon Black Planet Award ethecon exposes and condemns individuals who have contributed to the destruction and downfall of our Blue Planet in an outrageous way.

ethecon has been holding this award ceremony once every year since 2006. The aims are to name and shame those who act with total disregard for the well-being of the animate and inanimate world and the social and ecological cohesion of our Blue Planet, and to honour in solidarity those who fight against such destructive behaviour and stand up for the preservation of our Blue Planet.

The award of honour, the International ethecon Blue Planet Award, consists of a valuable piece of art designed by the well-known photographic artist Katharina Mayer from Düsseldorf. Every year, she designs a unique item especially for ethecon. The award of shame, the International ethecon Black Planet Award, on the other hand, is a simple, mass-produced plastic globe that has been defaced by a young person.
