Miranda Redinger, City of Shoreline Planner
awarded Green Globe from King County

King County Executive Dow Constantine on Monday presented King County Green Globe Awards to 13 recipients, the county’s highest honor for local environmental efforts.

The top honor – the 2019 Environmental Catalyst Award – went to the University of Washington for its world-renowned work in researching climate, climate change impacts and responding to climate change that range from global-scale assessments to studies that focus on the implications of climate change on the Puget Sound region’s communities and natural systems.

Executive Constantine also presented Gene Duvernoy, recently retired head of the land conservation organization Forterra, with a special award for Outstanding Lifetime Contributions to Open Space Conservation.

“Throughout King County, people, businesses, and nonprofits are doing extraordinary work to protect the spectacular natural environment that is central to our identity and our quality of life,” said Executive Constantine. 
“The Green Globe Award recipients we honor today inspire and challenge us to leave this special place even better for future generations.”

Executive Constantine hosted the award ceremony on Earth Day at the Olympic Sculpture Park in downtown Seattle.
