Lord Heseltine to receive environmental fellowship
Former British deputy prime minister and Conservative MP Lord Heseltine is to receive an honorary fellowship from the Society for the Environment for his contribution to environmental concerns.
The retired politician and cabinet member is one of 12 leading figures who will be awarded a fellowship later this month.
The fellowship recognises Lord Heseltine’s contribution to environmental concerns and his work as a previous Secretary of State for the Environment under both Margaret Thatcher’s Government in the 1980s and John Major’s Government of the early 1990s.
Recently appointed president of the organisation, Tony Juniper, a previous director of Friends of the Earth in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and vice chair of Friends of the Earth International will be receiving the accolade also.
Society for the Environment chief executive Alex Galloway said: “Our mission is to champion the role of environmental professionals, and to set standards for their recognition through the Chartered Environmentalist qualification. As we grow, it remains important to acknowledge and appreciate the work and contributions individuals have made and continue to make to the green sector.”
