University Centre Weston (UCW) Environmental Health Widening Participation Team

View the 1000-word entry

Judges’ comments:
"This Environmental Health collective took on the challenge of reaching out, engaging and enticing young people to take an interest in issues that might lead to a career in Environmental Health, or at least a scientifically informed awareness of some common environmental health challenges. A good deal of energy and applied technique was invested, and the promotional activities demonstrated could be tried out by others in the profession."

"The team’s proactive approach to current issues and continued support of local businesses is exceptional. Through effective, hands-on sampling and visits to local businesses, it was apparent that there was a need for intervention."

Hassan Alzain

View the 1000-word entry

Judges’ comments:
"Hassan has demonstrated a commitment to his profession by his introduction of nutritional standards for the first time in Saudi Arabia, as well as developing a noise mitigation strategy from scratch for water operation facilities in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia that covers more than 100 locations. His nomination stood out as his projects could have been delivered by a much larger organisation so for this to be done by Hassan at an individual was exceptional, and a demonstration of his passion and drive."
