Call for nominations for the Queen's Birthday Honours 2017

24 May 2016

Do you know someone working in the environmental sciences who deserves to be recognised for their outstanding contribution, their achievements in public life, and/or their commitment to serving and helping Britain?

If so, then create an opportunity for them to receive national recognition for their impact by nominating them for a UK honour. Honours are a distinctive way of acknowledging someone's achievements, rewarding people who have made a real difference to society.

Anyone can nominate someone for an honour; this can be done by completing the highlighted areas on the UK honours form and following the guidance documents listed below. This is designed to save you time and when we contact you following a shortlisting meeting, we will require the whole form to be completed. It will then be considered as part of the science nominations by an independent committee. There is considerable competition for honours, and the assessment is rigorous, so the citation is the most important piece of evidence for the honours committee to consider.

Note: All nominations are treated in the strictest confidence. The nominee should not be informed that they have been nominated.
