Honors and Recognition
Allan Savory, Savory Institute, and the Africa Centre for Holistic Management continually receive high-profile honors and recognition for their efforts to empower others to use Holistic Management to restore grasslands. Here are a few:
Allan Savory was chosen to present at the TED2013 global conference “The Young. The Wise. The Undiscovered” in the Sustain! category. His presentation was titled “How to green the world’s deserts and reverse climate change.”
Allan Savory was a semi-finalist for the 2012 Land for Life Award. The award recognizes excellence and innovation in sustainable land management and provides winners with visibility and support to expand their work.
The Savory Institute is among a dozen remaining groups nominated for the 2012 Virgin Earth Challenge. Our organization emerged from an extensive review process of over 2,600 submissions.
The Savory Institute’s sister organization, the Africa Centre for Holistic Management, won the 2010 Buckminster Fuller Challenge Award for the organization working to solve the world’s most pressing problems.
In 2003, Allan Savory won this award given to the person doing the most for the environment on a global scale.
This organization identified Holistic Management as a way to empower people to reverse the Africa-wide cycle of failing surface and ground water, failing land productivity, massive drought, livestock deaths, famine, food aid and destocking.
Allan Savory was featured in a video selected as one of TED’s “Ads Worth Spreading” in 2010, based on his ability “to engage in a dialog with [his] audience based on creativity, authenticity, and a shared pursuit of a better future.”
