Successfully communicating complex and challenging issues to the public and its stakeholders who need to understand the value, the benefits, and the process of environmental engineering and environmental science projects aimed at benefiting the public health is paramount. With this in mind, in cooperation with the International Water Association and the PIA Awards, the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists (AAEES) offers the Environmental Communications Awards. This award is designed to recognize environmental communication efforts by industrial entities; municipal, state and federal governments; and consulting firms who work to convey the important environmental messages to their constituencies and other interested parties.
The winner of this award is automatically qualified to enter the International Water Association’s Project Innovation Awards competition for Marketing and Communications-North American Category.
