On March 15, Her Majesty Queen Noor received the 2009 Global Environmental Citizen Awards from Harvard Medical School’s Center for Health and the Global Environment. The Global Environmental Citizen Awards are presented annually by the Center for Health and the Global Environment to individuals who have been world leaders in protecting the global environment.

In accepting the award, Her Majesty said “Our health, our welfare, and our children’s future depends on the choices we make with respect to the environment just as much – if not more – than any other major issue we face today.” Queen Noor goes on saying “Even though the Middle East contributes less than five percent to the causes of global warming, its effects will be disproportionately severe in this region.”
