About the BIE-Cosmos Prize

 

The BIE-Cosmos Prize, EXPO 2012 Yeosu for The Living Ocean and Coast is the third edition of the BIE-Cosmos Prize series, born of an initiative between the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) and the Expo ’90 Foundation (the Commemorative Foundation for the International Garden and Greenery Exposition, Osaka, Japan, 1990) and carried out in collaboration with Expo organizers.

Each Prize recognizes not-for-profit projects from citizens and groups working in fields related to the Expo theme at which the prize is awarded. The series was conceived as a way to continue to foster the innovative value of Expos for social progress by encouraging the active participation of citizens and the public.

The series aims to give, within Expos, visibility to selected projects that have been recognized for their potential to make a positive long-term impact in fields related to the Expo themes. Each Prize ultimately gives financial support to one project, whose development is considered part of an Expo’s grassroots legacy.

The first edition of the prize series was awarded at EXPO Zaragoza 2008 – Water and Sustainable Development in Spain to an Argentinean professor of biochemistry, while the second edition was awarded at EXPO Shanghai 2010 – Better City, Better Life in China to a private non-profit organisation from Guizhou, China, for the project “For Our Daughters”.
