> approaches to human-nature relations, in ethics, trade, as well as in the
> relevant institutions and governance.

>    )
>    2. The *application form *will automatically be sent to the nominating
>    Government or Organisation (Nominator) indicated by the Nominee with an
>    email, which will provide a link to a *nomination form* inviting the
>    Nominators to approve and submit their nominations.
>    3. Nominators and Nominees will  receive an acknowledgement message
