Applications for the Dr Andreas Schild Memorial Mountain Prize 2022 are now open. The Dr Andreas Schild Memorial Mountain Prize is awarded every year to an individual, organization, or private sector entity based in the Hong Kong Himalayas (HKH) or beyond, which has demonstrated outstanding efforts enabling sustainable and resilient mountain development in the HKH region to benefit the environment as well as communities—particularly the poor, the youth, and women.

In 2022, the focus of the award will be building the resilience of HKH communities. Nominations will be accepted for those individuals, organizations, or companies that have worked with HKH communities through innovations in their various capacities and brought about positive tangible change on the ground.
