Maurice Strong

Canadian Maurice Strong, special advisor to the secretary-general of the United Nations, has made extraordinary contributions to the world of public affairs and business. His work for the first United Nations conference on The Human Environment in Stockholm in 1972, of which he was secretary-general, provided the foundation for all subsequent international environmental negotiations. For three decades, he has challenged all nations to work together to overcome global environmental threats. The complexity of creating this world dialogue on the survival of the Earth and the search to find practical solutions cannot be underestimated. Mauric strong received the Jack P. Blaney award in January 2003.
