Geoff Green, SOI founder and president, has been appointed as one of the newest members of the Order of Canada! This was in recognition of a lifetime of distinguished service to his community and to his field “for his contributions as an environmental educator and explorer, notably his commitment to conservation issues in the Arctic and Antarctic.”

Established in 1967 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Order of Canada is the centrepiece of Canada’s honours system and recognizes outstanding achievement and merit of a high degree, especially in service to Canada or to humanity at large. The Order recognizes people in all sectors of Canadian society and is one of this country’s highest civilian honours. The contributions of those appointed are varied, yet they have all enriched the lives of others and made a difference to this country.

Keep up the good work, Geoff!
