Earthship creator Michael Reynolds has been nominated for the Zayed Future Energy Prize Lifetime Achievement Award. The prestigious international prize was created to honor the late ruler of Abu Dhabi and Founding Father of the United Arab Emirates, HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. The prize recognizes business and individuals across three categories: small business, large business and Lifetime Achievement. From the website for the prize, “By honouring and rewarding those people who are tackling the energy crisis today, we hope to educate and inspire future leaders and innovators. Creating a sustainable energy future is the surest way to combat the impending threat of climate change and global warming, and to ensure a clean, livable environment for future generations.” The Lifetime Achievement Award includes a $500,000 cash prize. Winners are honored at an awards ceremony in January.
