AAEP President's Award for Environmental Leadership 2018

Gurmit Singh K.S. (Malaysia) for 50 year’s of outstanding activism in protecting Malaysia’s environment.

Gurmit Singh K.S. has written books and  papers about the pressing issues, formed two prominent local environmental organizations – the Environmental Protection Society, Malaysia (EPSM)  and the Centre for Environment, Technology and Development, Malaysia – and been involved in many of the country’s major environmental initiatives. He’s spoken up fearlessly about important issues, never backing down even when his outspokenness often put him in conflict with local authorities.
