What is the Earth Hall of Fame Kyoto?

    The Earth Hall of Fame Kyoto is an award to honor in perpetuity the achievements of those who have contributed to conservation of the global environment. It is given in the name of Kyoto, the birthplace of the Kyoto Protocol.

    We hope to contribute to the efforts and shared purpose of all people, regions, and countries dedicated to solving our planet’s environmental problems by sending a message from Kyoto to the rest of the world at this commendation ceremony, which is to be held at the Kyoto International Conference Center, the very same venue as the Third Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP3).
