The Mirpuri Foundation launched a prestigious international sustainability award for 2021. The Mirpuri Foundation Ocean Award was created to recognize excellence in the scientific community and reward the most innovative projects designed to positively impact the health of our oceans

The winner was announced on World Environment Day 2021 (June 5th) during the awards ceremony at the close of the annual Mirpuri Foundation Sailing Trophy – one of the premier regattas of the international sailing calendar – which took place at the Clube Naval de Cascais in Portugal to raise awareness and important funds for marine conservation projects around the world.

The winner received ‘The Mirpuri Foundation Ocean Award of the Year 2021’ trophy and a prize of €5,000 in recognition of her excellent contribution for a better world, plus the opportunity to receive global recognition and gain exposure for the exemplary accomplishments of their work to reduce environmental impact on the world’s seas. A shortlist of finalists was also exhibited at the event, to celebrate the global effort of the scientific community to combat the climate crisis and contribute to long term ocean health.
