The Josef Vavroušek Environmental Prize

The Josef Vavroušek Environmental Prize is awarded annually by the Partnership Foundation. Its purpose is to reward specific actions for a healthy environment and sustainable development. Josef Vavroušek was the first Federal Minister of the Environment, who promoted the concept of sustainable living in the Czech Republic and within the framework of European cooperation and the United Nations, and a university teacher. His legacy remains to this day an inspiration for greater respect for the environment.
