Dear Tan Sri/Dato’/Prof./Assoc. Prof./Dr.,
 
May this email reach you while you are in the best of health and Iman by the grace of Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala.

The Frontiers Research Foundation has launched the Frontiers Planet Prize to accelerate scientific solutions for healthy lives on a healthy planet. The Frontiers Planet Prize aims to directly address the planetary crisis by mobilising scientists engaged in breakthrough research with the greatest potential to stabilise the planet’s ecosystem.

We are delighted to inform you that the Academy of Sciences Malaysia (ASM) is officially the National Representative Body (NRB) for this prize. ASM will be the focal point to coordinate the article submission to Frontiers Research Foundation.

As such, we call all researchers to submit article(s) aligned with planetary boundaries. ASM is also using this opportunity to take stock of all relevant research articles from 2019 - 2023 that addressed the 9 planetary boundaries as introduced by Johan Rockström and his team of scientists (https://www.stockholmresilience.org/research/planetary-boundaries/the-nine-planetary-boundaries.html) for ASM’s National Planetary Health Action Plan (NPHAP).

 

Submit your article now for a chance to gain global recognition.
